My partner and I live on a beautiful 100 acre property (most of which is native forest) which needs ongoing maintenance including maintaining tracks, clearing weeds from drains on our 600m driveway,and splitting and stacking firewood. There is always a carpentry project happening (if you have those skills). Also general farm work (we have sheep), which can involve lifting.

Our preference is someone who was brought up in the countryside, is strong, and capable with machinery. An international drivers licence would be a bonus. We like people who work hard, and are capable of doing so without supervision! We do not usually need help with housework.

In return for 4 hours work for every night you stay, we look after you well! Our food is good wholesome farm cooking. (Unfortunately we do not cater for vegetarian/vegan diets)

Please note we do not offer a single overnight stay. We want a person(s) who will stay for a minimum of 3 days

Because our climate here on the west... more inside

Hello!

I am in the middle stages of multiple sclerosis. I just need help taking care of the garden and keeping the house tidy in exchange for accommodation and food. You will have your own room (depending on how many other people will be here), running water, a hot shower, warm living room, and fresh veggies to cook with. My property is located in the beautiful Springs Junction with lots of tracks to walk through around, and it's very easy to hitch out if needed because it is close to the main highway.

I have a car but am unable to drive it now, so it would be good if you had a valid drivers license or some sort of car.I cannot pick you up from Springs Junction and it is a 15 km walk to get here,very isolated.So a car is vital to get here:-)
