  • Description


    Hey guys, I have a small hobby farm in the quite town of Tumbarumba with a population of about 3000. I run cattle and a small amount of sheep.
    I have just built a new house and need some help with things around the house and on the farm.
    I am seeking someone for the next 3 months, to finish things off around my new house.
    The area of Tumbarumba has lots of other work opportunities for someone needing some extra income.
    These include grapes, blueberries, apples, sawmills, tree planting, and more.
    I’m looking for someone who can help me around the house and farm, and In return I can provide free accommodation, most meals and show you the area of Tumbarumba.
