Helpers needed in September 2016 for lime picking and orchard maintenance work such as pruning, weeding and mulching. Other jobs available are listed below. Would suit a couple or 2 friends travelling together. Experience with a small tractor would be great but not essential. This farm is a scenic 12.5 acre property situated ten minutes from Gympie, and 1 hour from Noosa and beautiful Rainbow Beach. From there you can get to Fraser Island. We have two friendly dogs, an irrigated orchard of 300 lime trees, vegetable and other gardens, 1 horse, free range chickens and a small herd of goats. We have goat twins born (21/9) Our French helpers named them Marcel and Chippie :) Other jobs include; mowing/slashing, brush cutting, gardening, goat care, feeding, milking and general farm maintenance. Cooking and cleaning as jobs are also a helpful option. Hours and days vary depending on demand for limes, average 20-25 hours per week. Shared meals or food provided to make your own. We are happy to share and learn new recipes, and we enjoy good food, conversation and learning about languages, culture and travels. Accommodation is in our caravan which has 1 single bed and a double bed. Shared bathroom/toilet is in the house nearby. In return we are looking for happy, enthusiastic, honest helpers who are respectful of us and our property. Good wifi is available. We have a piano, guitar and a table tennis table and can provide transport into Gympie every day as needed. Enjoy campfires and try camp oven dinners under the stars. Initial stay for 1 week, then negotiable. If you are lucky, you may see some large kangaroos who come to visit ;)
