We have a 15 acre farm in southern Tasmania close to a town called Huonville; right in the centre of the cherry and apple farming district.
My husband, daughter and myself live on the property along with our cat and many farm animals! We have sheep, turkeys, chickens, ducks and quail. We are walking distance from public transport which is very convenient. There is a superb local bakery called ’Summer Kitchen’ a short walk from our home and the Huon river is also walking distance. My daughter is always happy to be a bit of a tour guide! You will have three meals (+ morning and afternoon tea) and your own room in our house. We look forward to having you come stay!
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
You will have experience managing a farm, working with sheep and poultry. See how fencing is done how to run irrigation systems and learn how to make cheese. See how baby chickens, turkey and ducks hatch! Experience the beauty of the Huon Valley - potentially some local bush walks and true farm life.
We are looking for an individual who is willing to help look after some of our animals and help in the garden. No previous experience is necessary. A helpful can do attitude is essential. Overall the day to day running of the farm would be part of your job. Feeding the animals, collecting the eggs, cleaning, watering, moving the grain to the chicken pens.
Most of the work is light duties.
Your accommodation will be in the main house in a spare bedroom/office. You will share the bathroom facilities with the rest of the family. You are responsible for keeping your room tidy at all times.
When your chores are done, Huonville may provide all you need for shopping, swimming and bike riding.
In Huonville there are local shops, cafes, library and clothing stores. Places to fish, ride and swim. My daughter loves to adventure and can take you to some local bush walking tracks and river spots.
