I loved my first experience with Helpers last summer!
What you see is what you get- I do not promise four stars, but true seclusion and rustic comfort only 20 minutes from the vibrant art and craft town of Deloraine.

I currently have some helpers. I will next need helpers in mid- December. Please contact me in advance.

"Fern-lea" is a humble historic farmhouse on a 5 acre (1.7 ha) small holding with vegetable and fruit gardens, 3 ewes, four lambs, a wether and a ram and three neutered female cats. It is a native vegetation bio-bank/habitat. Native bandicoots, potoroos and pademelons live here, and I have recorded 32 species of native birds as residents or visitors.
"Fern-lea" runs on solar panels feeding into the grid, woodfired hotwater and cooking and wood heater. There is one guest room with a double bed. Two singles could also be accommodated. Bathroom is shared. "Fern-lea" is located between Deloraine and Cradle Mountain.
It is a peaceful place. Other farmstay places are nearby.
Help is needed on both farm and inside the 1860s house. Vegetable gardening and mulching the flower borders is underway. I have started renewing fencing this year and need to remove old floor coverings in the kitchen to replace with new. Painting walls inside also.
I run licensed small group personal tours of wild caves also 4WD day tours you can join as part of the offer. I also work part-time as a registered Bowtech physical therapist. I am a healer, and look forward to helping your back/neck/hayfever or whatever.
Take the time to relax and heal your soul while away from the crowds. The mountain landscape here is profoundly peaceful, with many short walks available to access the forests and wilderness nearby. The Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area is my back yard. The beach, the highlands or the city of Launceston are within one hour's drive. The climate is lovely, never too hot or too cold for too long!
I have changing paid work commitments off the farm. Please don't despair if I am not able to get back to you immediately!
