Firstly note that we can't afford to pay wages, only free food & accommodation. We have available a 3 bedroom fibro house on another part of our property, which currently needs some tidying up [washing & painting the house, inside & out, as well as a few minor repairs ].Also an old small caravan where we live for when there is only a single person.There is Telstra reception in the area for mobiles, & wi fi at the main house to check on emails etc. Not for watching movies etc as we do not have a large download as it is too expensive for us. We are in need of someone to help John on the farm & also a bit about the house. We own a small beef cattle farm,in the hills , elevation 700 meters, 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 you tube at : farming life australia. As well at ; the Hinchinbrook Way, click on video gallery & search The Art Of Farming & also Fishing For Inspirational Art. We are a non smoking, drug free work site. We are 1 hour from town.At the moment we have an old caravan close to our house for helpers to stay in, without your own private toilet or bathroom facilities as well as the other house on another part of our property. We live in a little house which we are in the process of extending. You can have all your meals with us. John also plays a bit of guitar & banjo. We treat our helpers as helpful friends, not workers.Please check out our YouTube channel Farming Life Australia before you come & make sure you think it will be your cup of tea, as we will not be going to town for a minimum of 3 days.. You must be able to understand & speak a fair level of English. Jobs can range from basically helping about the house to cattle work, fencing, building sheds & extensions on our little house, cutting & sawing timber on our mill or just to burn in our wood stove,or clear & plant ground for improved pasture for cattle, including hay & silage to be cut & baled.
