  • Description


    We’re a small family, living on our family farm half way between Perth and Geraldton. My partner (Callum, Australian, 34) and myself (Caroline, German, 32) with our two daughters (Leah, bilingual 3 1/2 years and Amaia, 5 weeks). We mainly run sheep and do a little bit of cropping. With seeding coming up Callum will be very busy and will have to work 24/7.
    Therefor I’d love some help in the household, maybe get my garden re -established and have some help with the kids. If you’re interested, you’re more than welcome to feed sheep, drive a tractor and be part of the day to day busy farm live.
    We will offer you a lovely family home,, an amazing few with the best sunsets and the sky full of stars.
    Considering we’re quite remote, it’s only a 40 min drive to the ocean. Our closest town has got a great country pub and on weekends we’d love to take you to our local footy and hockey games to meet some friendly country people and make some friends.

  • Help


    We’re looking for a female ( in their 20s or 30s) with self initiative, who can help me with the day to day household chores for the next 3-4 weeks (but can do longer if you like it and we get along well). If you’re keen, you can have a go at my garden which could do with a bit of love and care.
    If Callum is working late, I’d need some help to get Leah to bed. Which means dinner, bath and a bed time story.

    You’ll have your own room in our family home. A bathroom which you might have to share with our daughter (but we can convince her otherwise, if you’d prefer that)

    We’ll provide all food for you but would appreciate it if you could cook occasionally. I’d love to get some new inspiration and learn new recipes!!!!
