Husband and wife team with young family running a small-to-medium commercial ginger farm, with other small crops from time-to-time. Also run a small commercial grass-fed cattle herd, as well as various pigs, chooks and a lamb!
Using mostly biodynamic principles, our farm is a busy place throughout the year.

Situated 25km south-west of Gympie (regional centre), nestled in rich hill country, the property is a mixture of pasture, cropping land and some remnant scrub forest. Gympie is the gateway township for beautiful Rainbow Beach and Tin Can Bay, and is a significant small-to-medium regional centre, with all banking, shopping, travel and other services available.

Work required includes picking ginger or other crops, weeding, general farm labour duties, occasional assistance with mustering. Shifts of 4-6 hrs per day available most weekdays, with some flexibility in rostering. Early starts often required. Minimum one-month stay preferred.

Private rooms in separate house provided, suit couples. Home has all basic facilities. Mobile phone service ok most times. WIFI occasionally available at farmers' private residence.
Food - groceries/provisions for self-catering provided. Opportunity for meals with the family weekly. Your own car is desirable but transport can be sometimes provided.

General farm lifestyle, bushwalking, wildlife, swimming in creeks all available and is within day-trip distance of fabulous Rainbow Beach, Fraser Island, the Mary Valley, Noosa and the Sunshine Coast - some great places to include on your regional Australia "bucket list"
