This is on an 80 hectare beef farm, in the rolling hills of North East Victoria, near the Snowy Mountains.

There is the main house, including 2 B&B rooms & bathroom, a fsc 2 bedroom cottage, and 1 room bungalow, volunteer accomodation would probably be in the bungalow (with a double futon, single bed, & reverse heating/cooling), or possibly in the cottage if not rented at the time.

We run a small flock of Wiltshire sheep and Red deer. The organic vegetable garden and orchard is in need of proper establishment and maintenance, and the re-establishment of chickens after some fencing. There is unlimited wifi access at the house and bungalow, and dietary preferences such as paleo, raw vegan, dairy free, and gluten free can all be catered for.

Ideally volunteers would be physically fit, over 21yrs, non-smoker, definitely no drugs, and happy to work 4-6 hrs per day for 5-6 days per week, depending on task. A driver's licence is handy but not essential. Jobs could include carpentry, gardening, pruning, fencing, minor handling of animals, straw bale and/or cob building of small projects, and gfm.

Prefer one weeks notice, and can arrange pick up from Albury NSW (closest train/airport).
