  • Description


    My husband and I and our 2 baby boys have a small hobby farm in the Huon Valley. Currently we have sheep, chickens, dogs and humans. As we both work we need some help with the housework, the children and care for the animals.

    We raise and eat our own meat, so if you are vegetarian or vegan and offended by meat please do not apply.
