  • Description


    Small off grid beef farm that needs help feeding Bobby calves. There's 10 Bobby calves that I need assistance feeding 2 times a day. There's accommodation on farm, 3 bedroom house available. Responsible for feeding calves Monday - Friday morning and night. Im a single 37 yr old gay man, I travel for work Monday-Friday, so a reliable farmstay is needed to care for the calves. The farm is a recycled house, which was destined for demolition. I had the house relocated and have spent the last 3 years renovating it. The farm gardens and surrounds are a blank canvas for creativity, with a vision of sustainable gardens and future food growing potential.
