  • Description

    Description

    We are a Christian family, we have 9 children but 4 of them have left home.
    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.

    As this is a farm the work is seasonal and will vary from maintenance to fencing to building to working with animals. Also there is always gardening and cooking to be done.
