  • Description

    Description

    We are a small family farm. We have 230 acres, horses, cows, pigs, chickens, ducks, geese, goats, sheep, cats and dogs, we are farmer-florists growing cut flowers for local sales and as well as establishing a passionfruit orchard and market garden. We live in a small community 15-20 minutes from Rockhampton. We have 3 generations of our family living on our farm. We have 3 children (7, 6 and 1) who we homeschool. We are a non smoking and drug free family.

    Help

    We would like some English speaking backpackers to stay with us to provide some help with general house hold maintenance (e.g. feeding animals, general daily housework chores, helping with meal preparation) or possibly help with other farm, household and homeschool projects based on your skills and interests and our needs at the time of your stay. No experience required just a willingness to work, learn, listen and provide some very much appreciated help in the mornings leaving your afternoons and weekends to enjoy the farm and explore the local area.
