We are on 400 acres located in Brookton which is a very small working town 1.5hours South East of Perth. We are a young couple with a newborn and require a caretaker to help and live on our farm. We follow the principles of holistic management, all our farming is ethical, natural and truly free range. We have approx 1500 hens we and sell the eggs at farmers markets in Perth on the weekend. We also have 3 dogs, 10 sheep and 3 pigs as pets.
You will have your own 2 bedroom 2 bathroom house. Water and electricity included. Plus eggs and can pick your own veggies from the greenhouse.
Main jobs will be: Opening and closing chicken pens at sunrise and sunset, cleaning and filling feeders and waterers, collecting eggs, cleaning and packing eggs, preparing orders for delivery, setting up fencing, mowing, tree planting and gardening. There is about 3/4 hours work every day. We dont mind you going to Perth or surrounding towns in your free time as long as the jobs are done here first. You will need to be here most nights by dark to lock up animals but we are slightly flexible as long as you have a chat to us to work something out. Couple must have own vehicle. Most pets welcome provided they get along with ours. Willing to negotiate length of stay. You will have lots of privacy as you will be on your own block with your own house, deck and beautiful garden. Best suits someone willing to stay put for a few months and enjoy a simple lifestyle. Open to couples and families too. Please get in touch for a friendly chat :)
