Our farm is a place where you will learn so many things and will be encouraged to experience a life that you will find very different to what you may have expected or experienced so far in Australia. So if you are sick of hanging out in backpacker hostels and want to refuel body and mind, read on!

From all the various farm jobs to working with animals, to producing and cooking food. It will all be new and interesting. Our lifestyle has had a positive effect on all our past helpers, just read our reviews to see how good it has been for them. We've had some really great helpers and they have said some lovely things about us! We enjoy having people here and they seem to enjoy it too.

Kim and Lucy run a free range pig operation, but also run a cattle herd and have other animals like horses, chickens, ducks, sheep and goats. We manage our land and animals using organic principles and are working towards an “almost” sustainable lifestyle. We have a vegie garden and eat our own home grown meat, vegies, eggs and milk (and yoghurt and feta). Lucy likes to cook from scratch and fully believes in the Slow Food Movement.

We need help with feeding the pigs and other animals and other general farm chores, gardening and some kitchen duties. You may also be required to do some house cleaning.

No experience is needed, a desire to learn is required and we will teach you everything else you may need to know and more! We would welcome you into our home as we think that being "part of the family" is important in developing a good working relationship.

Accommodation is in separate quarters but you may need to share facilities if we have several helpers here.

Laundry and internet is provided. We exchange your time helping with your accommodation and some great food. We would like you to stay at least three weeks, but if everything goes well you can stay longer.

If you would you like to learn about sustainable farming and would like to know how to produce and prepare food from the ground up, then this is the place for you! So even though we can't sign off on the second year visa, our farm is a great place to stay for a few weeks (or longer) where you won't need to spend any money and will be well looked after. We will consider paying a small wage following a trial period, for the right person.

We pick up and drop off to Rockhampton. Please consider coming to Central Queensland.
