We are a family owned and operated farm that produces pasture-raised chickens in the beautiful Barossa Valley.
We provide our customers with great-tasting chickens grown sustainably on pasture in mobile enclosures that are moved daily. During the day (weather permitting) our chickens are allowed to free roam. We make all of our mobile chicken enclosures from recycled and reused materials as much as possible. We supply our chickens to restaurants and also sell them direct to the public at the Barossa Farmers Market every week.
We are looking for willing and fit workers to help with caring for our chickens. This would involve feeding/watering them and moving the mobile homes every day as well as some general farm work.
We have a number of building projects planned, so someone with building skills (or willing to learn) would be very welcome. Our twin daughters are aged three and we would love someone to help with child minding occasionally.
Accommodation is provided in a separate one-room cottage. Shower/toilet are currently in the main house but one of the first building projects is to add a bathroom to the cottage complete with solar hot water heating!
In addition to our meat chickens, we have two dogs, a cat, some layer chickens (and a handsome rooster)a and five sheep.
We would like 4 hours work per day (for 5 days a week) in exchange for food and board and will require some weekend work. Would suit 2 friends or a couple. Non-smokers preferred.
