    We have a 2700 acre and lease another 1000 acre cattle and sheep property in the northern New England part of NSW just out of Glen Innes.
    We have a mixed farming enterprise consisting of fat lambs , wool production and cattle.
    We live in the original Station homestead built in the 1900's . Yes it is old and need of some loving care but this beautiful building has 7 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, formal dinning & large lounge with bay windows and large sweeping verandahs.
    We are in the design stage of renovations and improvements .
    With shearing and lambing season coming apron us a few helping hands whether it is checking ewes when lambing ,feeding sheep or in the shearing shed with rousing and wool pick up, There also could be checking fences and farm maintenance.
    Even some help around the house with cooking meals , housework or mowing lawns.
    We are looking for a motivated, conscientious, honest and reliable person or couple that are willing to experience and appreciate our country life.
    Our family have grown and live 5 hours away so it is just Paul and myself working the farm.
