We live in a nice spot in Northern Victoria, not far from the Goulburn River which offers great fishing. This region's rivers are renowned for catching the great Murray Cod.

We are only 10 minutes from the township of Kyabram which has the famous Fauna Park where you can cuddle a Koala or get up close to Kangaroos and other native wildlife. The larger regional centre of Shepparton is only 20 minutes from our property.

Our property consists of 129 hectares of grazing and cropping country with calves, beef cattle and riding horses. We also have a number of client's horses here for training and education. If you are remotely interested in horses, coming to our property may give you the opportunity to learn from a great wealth of horsemanship knowledge.

Family is important to us and we welcome meeting and sharing customs and experiences with new people and learning something of them. We have three adult sons, two married and all living not far from us. We have four grandchildren who we see quite regularly.

Life on our property is never dull and Kerry enjoys having a joke with our helpx people who come and stay and also when possible showing them around some of our locality.

Accommodation is in a cosy self-contained one-bedroom furnished flat, with queen size bed, making it suitable for a couple or a single person as there is only the one bed. Meals will be provided in the house or you can self-cater if you prefer. Wireless internet is available on-site, however we are charged for downloads so preferably only for email contact and limited internet use.

Public transport is available from Melbourne to Shepparton or Kyabram, however we don't have access to public transport from the property so having a vehicle would be an advantage.

There may be some general farm maintenance such as fencing,feeding calves, cattle work, dogs,tending chickens, and some assistance with the clients'horses may be helpful at time, however the main priority would be assisting Mary with some garden projects which are too big for her to tackle on her own. Her garden is quite extensive and the vegetable garden also needs a revamp now that the summer harvest is coming to a conclusion.
We would only expect our helpers to be available for the weekdays and for only a few hours each day of help in return for food and accommodation. Weekends are yours to enjoy in whatever way you choose.

Other tasks and variety happens here on a daily basis where no two days are the same.

Some handy man experience or farm skills would be an advantage but not essential.

We would particularly like someone with some carpentry experience for some improvements and maintenance tasks.

Please non-smokers only and definitely no drugs. We would require helpers who speak good English.
