  • Description


    I'm Richie and I am a civil engineer/ project director/ farmer and my wife Kristina is working for the Tasmanian Red Cross. Kristina is originally from Sweden and our family has lived and travelled around the world. The two of us are now back on the family farm at Richmond while the kids are in Boston, Copenhagen and Sydney continuing studies or research at university.
    The property is only 20 minutes from the Tasmanian capital Hobart and a few kilometres from Richmond, one of the most historic places in Tasmania. I'm the fifth generation to work on the farm.

  • Aide


    We are doing some new work and maintenance on an old stable that is need of repair. We are looking for some help with Concrete footings, brickwork, painting, plasterboard, carpentry and gardening. I have plenty of experience with building houses and renovations but it's always good to have some help.
    Also there is rural fencing on the farm and other work associated with the property.

The Coal River valley where we are situated is renowned for it's local wine and produce and you'll be meeting some of the characters of the valley. We're involved in Landcare Australia and there are lots of native birds around, as well as the occasional echidna, wombat and pademelon.
