Our farm is located at Merton in the foothills of the Strathbogie Ranges in North-East Victoria about 50 minutes drive from the snowfields of Mt Buller.
Merton is a small farming community with the tourist town of Mansfield about 30 minutes away by car. Three other country towns Alexandra, Yea and Euroa are a similar distance. Melbourne is just under two hours drive away. The area is extremely pretty with farms scattered among the rolling hills and the valleys. Merton village is very small with a few houses, an old church, one general store and a public recreation area that includes tennis courts.
Our farm offers a true piece of Australian rural life with more than 330 hectares where we breed Angus cattle and have a large assortment of chickens, ducks and geese, five dogs and a cat and our cows have calves at foot.
We also share the farm with numerous kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas, wombats, parrots and the occasional koala.
We also publish magazines including the North By North East and run a media company.
We would prefer to have a couple. As payment for your work we are offering accommodation and meals. The work and the times are flexible but ablout 4 hours daily. The jobs would mainly be helping with gardening, animal handling, painting and general farm work depending on your skills and interests along with what needs to be done. With plenty of time to explore this lovely area of Australia.
We have a seperate house for guests and helpers which is fully furnished and equipped and include bedding and towels.
Being able to drive would be great and we can organise transport to our farm.
The weather is getting cold and wet. We do provide boots and working gloves.
