Farm worker/s required from early September for 3 - 6 months.
Set in the beautiful Mary Valley behind Noosa, our boutique egg and beef producing property is focused on improving health of the soil, the pastures, our livestock and providing nutrient dense food for our customers. There are numerous tourist attractions on the Sunshine Coast to visit during your stay and plenty of natural bush and hiking trails in our district.
Our livestock are treated with care and respect and form the focus of our daily work, as we employ daily moves for chickens, cell grazing and intensive pasture management processes. We run 100 head of cattle - bulls, cows & calves and about 700 chickens in mobile sleds. Plenty of grass fed beef and eggs on the menu, plus some garden vegetables.
Our location and work qualifies for second year visa. The revised Australian SECOND YEAR VISA conditions require you to be paid the award wage and have pay-slips to prove it. If you have special skills you think we could use then we may be able to come to an agreement, especially if you have the qualifications or experience to maintain and expand our gardens.
