  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of 4 living on a small farm. We are very busy and always appreciate some help. We have experience as hosts and as workawayers. We are looking for someone to help with gardening, animals and around the home. We currently have 4 cows, 3 calves, five cats and lots of chickens. Vegetarians and people with alergies may not be the best fit. We try to produce as much of our own food as possible. We have accommodation for a couple, family or small group of friends.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We love learning about people and other countries. We have been trying to learn some German for a few years and would like to continue. We are a pretty relaxed, typical Aussie family and are happy to welcome others into our lives.

    We would really appreciate help in the house garden and vegetable garden. Tasks include weeding, mulching, watering etc. Helping with the milking and feeding of the calves would be nice, you don't have to though. If you enjoy cooking and cleaning there is always plenty of that. We try to find where people's strengths lie and work with that. For the more adventurous we have some large weeds in the paddocks that need clearing and burning.
