  • Description


    In our home there is two of us, Paul & Claire. We live 4 minutes from our home town, We have a small hobby farm consisting of Chook's, Goats, Cows, & dogs.

    We have a Nursery in town and a tree removal business that keeps us very busy, So while we are at work we often ask for help with jobs at home tending to the animals, house work or general farm and garden work.
    We have a lot of minature goats and often ask our workawayers to spend time with them especially the younger ones to help quiet them down, and get used to people.

    We aren't strict with work hours, And if you wish to have a day off that's ok.

    We have home cooked meals every week night. Involving home grown vegetables and meat, Weekend's tend to be casual with lighter meals or bbq's, sometimes staying at our shack at the beach.

    We have a new and inviting self contained unit for our stayers, consisting of own bathroom and lounge room.

    We guarantee a warm welcome into our home.
    No smokers please.

  • Help


    We live on a hobby farm, have quite a large garden, and heaps of animals... always some thing to do.
    we also have a Nursery and landscape yard which keeps us busy most days, then on the farm the rest of the time. most work is on the farm and around the house and may be expected to be done while i am at work. yet other days can be casual and may involve taking you to work with me, giving you the opportunity to go down the street in our little town and having a look around.
