Looking for someone that can help with farm duties and is good with children. Jobs would include fencing, building garden beds, construction, mustering and working with cattle and odd jobs.

We are a young family running a farm within walking distance along a bicycle path to the Tallangatta township, and a supermarket & other facilities. Our property consists of a hilly & picturesque 150 acres overlooking Lake Hume made up of grazing land , bushland & spring-fed dams. Livestock includes a traditional Belted Galloway stud cattle, Wiltshire Horn sheep & rare poultry breeds. Trial vegetable gardens & fruit orchards are also underway. Work includes working with livestock, planting, growing, maintenance of fruit trees & vegetable garden, general farm chores, building projects. Meat-based mixed diet, meals will be with family of 6 (includes 4 children aged 1-12), so basically you will become a member of our family. You will get to experience many things such as cutting fire wood, welding, fencing, construction of buildings, animal husbandry, growing vegetables etc. We also often exhibit at poultry and cattle shows, which could be part of your experience. Accommodation would be a separate room in our house, with wireless ADSL internet available, and use of a computer if you needed it. There are lots of recreational activities with walking, biking and kayaking just to name a few. Transport is not a problem as we can pick you up from Albury or Wodonga. We have Mobile Phone reception.
