We are an active couple in our early 70's who operate a working potato farm and cattle grazing property some 14 klms away from the Highest elevated town of Ravenshoe on the beautiful Southern Atherton Tablelands in Queensland , Australia. We have many natural attractions in the local area, for instance Millstream Falls, Koombaloomba Dam, Beautiful Rain forests, Mt Hypipamee "The Crater", and many attractions including Millaa Millaa Falls, McHugh Lookout,Lake Eacham, Lake Barrine, Malanda Falls and Lake Tinaroo that are within a radius of 50 klms of the property.Living near the highest town in Queensland the days can be brisk, but in summer the temperature does not get to the extreme and nights are cool. On our property in our dams we have many wild life including platypus & many birds including the Kookaburra also know as Laughing Jackass.
My eldest son grows organic potatoes on part of the farm & also lives on the farm with his wife & 3 children aged 15,12,10.
Our property is some 800 acres of red volcanic soil , we grow potatoes & run 150 head of cattle. My hobby is rearing sheep and I have 6 sheep at the moment though this can change when the lambing season comes along .
Accommodation can be supplied in a separate cottage 20 meters away from the main house, well appointed with your own bedroom, a TV in the lounge area ,a bathroom, & kitchenette. All meals would be provided in the Main house. Applicants can make their own way to Atherton from Cairns , where they can contact me to find out whether I will be in Atherton, or alternatively you would catch the "Kerry" bus to Ravenshoe and ask the driver to drop you off at the Keough /Forest Home farm gate. Much of the work here is for help with the Gardening, Weeding, House cleaning, mowing, and the like .
Our normal work day is 5 hours a day 5 days an on the sixth day you rest. The way the hours are executed depends on your willingness to work flexible hours. We prefer non smokers, non drinkers and no illicit drugs will be tolerated on the property. We look forward to hearing from you soon , as we may have some vacancies in the next few weeks .
