Firstly note that we can't afford to pay wages, only free food & accommodation.I have just had a major operation on an ankle & am basically bed bound for the next 5 weeks & then still on crutches for another 6 weeks. We are in need of someone to help around the house, cooking, washing, cleaning,feeding pets etc. We own a small beef cattle farm,in the hills south west of Ingham, which we also produce hay for our livestock. We breed our own cattle to sell for slaughter. We are 2 1/2 hours n/w of Townsville & about 4 1/2 hours s/w of Cairns. We are getting aches & pains & cant work full days any longer, so we need help with livestock as well as maintaining machinery & construction of buildings, as our farm is a work in progress. We have a timber saw mill which we mill timber for our selves.We have a couple of stock horses as well as a cattle dog, & farm cats. Also chickens & turkeys for eggs & meat. John also does metal sculptures as a paying hobby . See us on John's web page; Heavy Metal Zoo. com, Also on you tube at The Hinchinbrook Way & search John's Art. Also : farming art life australia.. We are a non smoking work site. We are 1 hour from town.At the moment we have an old caravan for couples to stay in & a bed in the new part of the house for singles. You can have all your meals with us. John also plays a bit of guitar & banjo. We treat our helpers as friends, not workers.
