  • Description


    We are a Christian family, we had 9 children but 6 of them have left home and one was tragically killed in an accident with a horse.
    We have a small mixed farm with sheep, cattle, and cropping. Also some chooks and ducks. My wife also has a large country garden and vegetable garden. So we can have quite a variety of different things to do. We are never bored wondering what to do, rather where do we start. We live about 40 minutes from the garden city of Toowoomba.
    You don't need to know anything about farming but as long as you are happy to give everything a try and your best effort then we are more than happy to have you.
