  • Description

    Description

    Hugh and I have recently come back to live on our property after working in Western Australia for 3 years. We have 3 adult children who have all left home to pursue their study/careers. We have beef cattle and horses on our 320 ha (850 acre) property which is run under a biological farming system where we rotationally graze the cattle. We would like to introduce a new enterprise in 2018 and are currently exploring a few options.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Visitors would get to learn about farming practices on an Australian property. We have also lived in various parts of Australia, including NSW, Central Qld, the Kimberley & Perth, WA and could share knowledge about these areas.

    Help

    Helping with cattle including daily moving of electric fences, general maintenance like fencing, picking up sticks and weed control on the property plus feeding horses. We also have a number of young Australian stock horses that have been broken in recently and need some consistent riding to get them going. This part would only be suitable for Workawayers with strong riding skills, such as competing in 3 day eventing or similar disciplines.
