We operate a real working Dairy farm with our sons Bryn and David, milking 250/300 holsteins cows year round. We have stud cattle and show at the local agricultural shows.
Situated 20km north of Margaret River and 20kms from the ocean and very fortunate to have Cowaramup Brewery and Brookwood Winery just up the road, both serving excellent meals. The Colonial Brewery has a great Beer and Pizza night on a Friday.
Our day starts at 6am with milking and calf feeding and ends around 6pm, seven days a week, 365 days a year. You stay in the house with us so you get the real Aussie family experience. We have two bedrooms, both double, shared bathroom. I love my guests to cook a meal or two.
We also grow 720 macadamia trees. Nuts harvested May to December.
The jobs you would be asked to help with are picking nuts, milking, gardening, general farm jobs and outside house jobs also washing the dishes.
The dairy is a 40 stand rotary operated by two people. We have taught every helper to assist us with milking and not had a failure yet. It is very easy:) If you don't like milking, that is fine.
Hours a day vary but we do make sure you have free time to see our beautiful part of Australia.
We are not a holiday home and do require our helpers to do a minimum 4.5 hours per day.
Current drivers license would be good.
Own transport an advantage.
