  • Description

    Description

    I enjoy the company of others especially people passing through from other countries. I run a small farm, which is in the process of being renovated and help from others is a great benefit to me, where in turn I provide accommodation and meals while on the property, outings and meals out are to your own expense to cover. However I always take my new visitors out to the local pub for an Australian beer.

    I am a local artist, studying to improve my skills and help on the property is great and so is company here on the farm.

    Blayney has 4 very definite seasons, 2015 we had a foot of snow, and temperatures can reach well over 30 degree's which for Blayney is a heat wave.

    If you enjoy learning things related to small acre farming, renovations, house keeping, cooking and learning English this is a place to put on your list.

    Sorry no smokers.

    I live on a small working farm in western New South Wales Australia. I have sheep, cattle and horses. I require help from time to time to do fencing, general farm work and gardening, house maintenance such as painting and small renovations, cooking at times, I love to learn world cruzine and I love to cook for you.

    There are times that I require someone to just property manage while I am away for a couple of weeks at a time. I offer work for accommodation and meals, you have your own private room and bathroom. Looking forward to meeting you.

    There is lot to do and see in the Blayney area. Blayney is located 36Klms from Bathurst which has a population of 36k it is also where they host the Mount Panorama Car Racing in October each year. They is a daily train to Sydney at 6.am in the morning and returns to Bathurst in the evening. Blayney has a populations of 3000, it consists of a number of small villages which is part of the Blayney Shire area.

    Orange is also only 36k from Blayney in the opposite direction to Bathurst. It also has a population of around 36k. It has seasonal work for stone fruits and grapes, there are lots of world known wineries in the Orange region.

    There is also a rail link to Dubbo from Orange. Volunteers who I have had here in the past have also enjoyed their stay and plan to come back in the future. I live a quite life here on my property with my two cats and my Italian Greyhounds, so if you have any allergies be sure to bring something to cover that.
