We have vacancies now for one Person.
We scaled back the farm as for the momend we only grow a bit of wheat
We do some some repair work on machinery at the moment
Also work to be done in our veggie garden and in our house.
If things are slow on the farm we do alittle bit renovation works on the house.
We live in a pretty part of Tasmania where we commercially farm flowers, and some other crops.
We welcome people with a 'hands-on' mentality. If you like new experiences and don't mind getting your hands dirty you are very welcome.
If you can help with jobs in and around the house and on the farm and garden you are welcome.
Also people more interested in domestic duties such as cooking cleaning and keep an eye on our son (Alex is 10 years old) are also welcome
We appreciate your help. We like to give back in experience and showing you nice parts of Tasmania and other ways we can think of.You can come with us on a Wallaby hunt or if that is not for you we can do just a spotliching tour at night over the farm. We have a big organic vegetable garden and many fruit trees. We practice self-sufficiency and permaculture wherever we can.
The farm is run conventionally but we try to reduce chemical input by moving to natural practices that are healthier for both people and the soil.
Accommodation is in your own room in our house, and all food provided. All our help'ers say they love the food we provide! All diets catered for. Most mobile phones work in this area but some better than others. Wifi available.
We like to go for bushwalk or a trip during the weekend and show you some of Tasmania.
For those people who are not used to rural living keep in mind that we live 11 km away from closest town (Wynyard) - and we don't like to go too often into town.
There is a daily bus line from and to Wynyard to Burnie-Devonport-Launceston-Hobart (Redline Bus) but when you book make sure you book it to Wynyard (for bookings to and from Wynyard you need to ring Red line as their online system does not handle that). Or we are very happy to book the bus for you. On the weekend the bus doesn't go to Wynyard, only Burnie (we live 30km from Burnie).
If you travel from the big North Island You can fly into Launceston
or Hobart and even into Burnie (Wynyard) with REX.
Other option is the Ferry to Devenport and then take the
Indication distance/ traveltime.
