We have a short stay opening (1-2 weeks) for two people who enjoy working outside. We are looking for helpers who don't mind manual labour (moving soil, collecting horse poo, mowing lawns, using a whipper snipper) and who like animals (dogs and horses). Farm experience is a bonus!

Our family of 4 (mum, dad and two daughters, 20 and 15) live on a quiet 8 acre property around 35 kilometres east of Melbourne.

We're a friendly family that enjoys getting to know new people and learning about different countries and cultures. We especially like to prepare meals together as it provides a great opportunity to chat and swap travelling stories (and recipes!). For the time you are with us, you are treated as a family member.

Work times are flexible (4 hours per day Mon-Fri) and in return we offer a comfortable bedroom, meals, wifi, use of a pool in summer and your own separate lounge/retreat. We're not near public transport, but shops, cafes, cinemas and trains etc are only a 10/15 minute drive away, and we're happy to drive you to local places. We have lots of lovely wineries, markets, nature walks and interesting places to see.

Please note we take only non smokers over the summer months. We can't offer horses to ride nor sign off on second year visas.
