  • Description


    Hello, we are looking for somebody to help this coming few weeks to help do some weed control on farm and around the house, quite an easy job no brain power needed you just have to like yellow flowers.
    We supply a cooked meal in the evening however will supply the food for breakfast and lunch but you are expected to prepare this yourself.
    Please note again,,,,,, are you in your mid 20,s,,,,,,,,, due to younger travelers hurting them self after being warned of dangerous activities buy their choice we cannot accept young travelers because of insurance policy for our farm.

    Your own vehicle would be an advantage but not essential
    Age preferance would be around 25 plus must be fit and strong .
    Please note that due to WorkAway and Government rules a business operation has to offer a Money exchange for work related to the business , so by arrangement we can pay for gorse spray projects.

    We are also looking for a mid January helper to milk the cows, we prefer some one that has some experiance, however you will be under the watch of experianced people.
