    About us:
    We are a young Australian family (Stefan and Bronte) with 2 year old son and a 6 month old baby girl. We are vegetarian, lefties, progressive,Science focused, LGBT friendly house hold. Our house is a busy and hectic one at the moment with the kids! If you love young kids, and a family environment this is the place for you.

    Our Work and hobbies:
    Our background is science in the fields Marine Biology and Ecology but currently Stefan works at a local school as a teachers aid and Bronte is on maternity leave at home looking after the kids. We are homebodies, we love hanging out in the garden with our kids and animals. Other things we enjoy are walks in nature looking for animals and at plants, gardening, hanging out with our family and friends.

    About our Farm stay:
    We both care deeply about animals which is why we started an animal sanctuary for rescued animals. Since we have had the kids the sanctuary has had to been hugely downsized to only the animals listed below.
    The sanctuary was started for chickens from battery farms. Current we have rehomed all our battery hens but plan to get more soon.

    Our Animals:
    3 Roosters
    5 Muscovy Ducks
    5 Muscovy Ducklings
    1 Karkee Cambell
    2 Cats

    Non Rescues:
    2 Karkee Cambells
    1 Turkey
    1 Rhode Island Red
    4 Guinea Pigs
    2 Border Collies

    We are seeking someone to help who:

    ~Can help Bronte with daily cleaning chores around the house.
    ~Someone who loves kids, who doesn't mind doing a bit of child care while Bronte is doing cleaning around the house.
    ~A kind hearted animal lover to help us with the care of our animals <3

    Note: Some of these animals have had a horrible life before they came to us so we need someone to help us who truly loves and cares for animals as a big part of what we do is rehabilitation.

    Because we have 2 young children our house hold is a quiet (aside from the noise the kids make), safe and peaceful (aside from when the kids lose it) place for non- partiers. We are a non smoking house hold.
