We are in the process of tidying and packing our house up to move to South Australia later in the year. work days and hours are not set, as it must fit around Steve's work schedule. Work days are normally 4-6 hours.

Steve (54) is from Greek heritage so expect lively, noisy, passionate and loud philosophical discussions. He also enjoys having a jam (playing music) and watching sports. Steve has a mechanical business specialising in LPG conversion.

Nik (24) lives here part-time and helps Steve with his mechanical business and also does handyman work around the community. He is passionate about fitness and healthy food/lifestyle. He goes to the gym regularly - If you like going to the gym, you may be able to go with him

Kate (22) works in Aged Care and also casually in a vegetarian food van. She enjoys playing music and socialising. She will be happy to take you out to experience Hobart nightlife.

We live on a waterfront property. There may be chances to go fishing and/or snorkeling. If you are an experienced horse rider (not riding school - must be able to saddle up) you may ride or work with our horses. We also have many instruments for you to play.

MIN. STAY 3 WEEKS, pref longer. We've made good friends with helpx, exchange knowledge and laughter. Some stay 6 months, many return and still in contact with 1st helpers
WE WANT - Happy people who appreciate EXCHANGE - What you give you get...

**MUST LOVE ANIMALS - 5 horses, 7 cats, chickens & 2 giant 75 kg dogs, Newfoundlands. Very gentle teddy bears. Dogs & cats share our home- always pet hair:) All animals have been rescued & have a happy ever after home with us.

You will live in our home as family so important that its happy, positive for all. We enter helpx with idea of making friends not just getting a "worker".

It's a lifestyle farm, not profit but still the hard work. Simple, rustic, humble home.
