  • Description

    Description

    We seek volunteers to help on on our property near Ravensthorpe (between Albany and Esperance) that runs 1,000 sheep for wool and meat. People who love the peace and quiet of the bush, native plants and animals, bushwalking and cycling will enjoy it here. Our farm is close to the Fitzgerald River National Park and beautiful beaches are 45km away.

    Help includes looking after the vegetable garden and orchard, fencing, general maintenance, construction, wood cutting and collecting, and sheep work. Lambing occurs in late April-May, lamb marking in June, and sheep shearing in July and October. Ability to drive a manual vehicle is an advantage.
