  • Description


    Hi! I live and work on the family farm I grew up on which has cattle, sheep, pigs and broad-acre cropping. I am working towards setting up a farm using the area around my farm house, where I have goats, chickens, ducks and a number of other furry friends. I am very soon going to open up the farm to work with some kids from the local high school who have disengaged with school. I am looking for help with the day to day care of animals, and assistance finishing off some building projects around the place. I can offer food and accommodation in return for the work around the farm, as well as other paid work on the farm for those interested.

    This is a great small country town, very close to the Murray River if you're interested in bush walking, bike riding or fishing. Very peaceful place to stay on the farm too.
