  • Description

    Description

    Currently looking for two helpers for avocado picking for July.

    We are Todd, Wiebke, Marlo and Millie. We live on an avocado farm outside of Toowoomba (1.5 hrs from Brisbane). We have horses. And we also have a border collie named Pebbles.
    Wiebke works in accountancy and Todd is an aircraft engineer and a horse muscle therapist. Todd is Australian and Wiebke grew up in Germany.
    We have both travelled a lot through Europe, South East Asia, Canada and Australia and we know how great it is to see a bit of the local life instead of one hostel after the other.
    You don't need to know anything about farming but as long as you give everything a try and your best effort then we are happy to have you.
    Your help would include house work, animal care, helping around the farm.

    Looking forward to welcoming you to our farm
