In general we are looking for people to share our home and help with general gardening and maintenance, chook pen maintenance (cleaning and re joojing) and other small farm projects.
We have a small, beautiful property backing onto the Tarago River in West Gippsland, with Drouin and Warragul the closest towns (15 minutes away). We are 1 hour 15 minutes (ish) from Melbourne CBD. We work from home.
We are usually looking for people to assist with general maintenance of house and farm/garden jobs.
There is plenty of work in the garden and around the house and sheds too, although seasonal. Winter is not the best time.
We are vegetarian, don't mind if you are a meat eater, but you will cook your own. We are happy for you to do your own cooking (we always have a well stocked pantry for those who want to bake and cook). We welcome vegans of course, even though we consume cheese, yoghurt and sometimes milk, again, prefer if vegans do your own cooking.
We have two free-range chickens, 1 pet sheep, 6 beautiful and friendly alpaca's and a house cat. We hope you are animal friendly. Our place is there forever home, they are all rescue animals and part of our family.
If you are self motivated, hard working, responsible and energetic and are happy to lend your hand at a variety of jobs, appreciate healthy living, enjoy living in beauty and engaging in some physical activity, we would warmly welcome you. We would prefer if you have had some years experience working as a self starter - age 40 plus.
Comfortable accommodation, good food and beautiful surroundings are what we offer in return for your assistance around the property.
You will need your own vehicle (also set up for caravans if you are self contained)
