Our beautiful free range chicken farm is in the Lush and fertile Kenilworth is west of Noosa in the Mary Valley. We are a medium sized free range egg producer. We have 1500 chickens, some horses, and cattle. We supply our eggs to shops on the Sunshine Coast. We are a family of 4 with 2 daughters in primary school. We enjoy our privacy but need some help on our farm now that our business is getting bigger.

We are looking for help with our free range egg business - some duties would be helping with supplying the chickens with feed & water. Some light cleaning duties of their housing, of course collecting eggs (the fun bit!!) and processing/packing eggs into cartons. Other jobs on the farm would be general maintenance - gardening, fencing and some household cleaning.
We would expect you to help 5 hours per day, and in exchange we will provide you with accommodation and food... including all the eggs you can eat!!!

You will be provided with your own bedroom. It has a comfortable Queen sized bed & cupboard storage. Shared bathroom with the rest of the family when they are in the house. You will have access to wifi, TV & computer. You can you use our caravan for staying elsewhere on our farm if this pleases you....maybe you would like to camp in it down by our river.

Our farm is less than 50 minutes to Noosa main beach. You have everything at your fingertips: shopping, backpacker hostels, bars & restaurants... and more beaches! We would be able to take you on your day(s) off & pick you up again. The farm is under 2 hours to Brisbane. Brisbane is the capital city of Queensland. We will be as accommodating as possible to supply you with your favourite activities.

Travellers would learn about the running of a free range egg farm and all that it entails. You would learn about chicken husbandry. The day to day care of chickens. Your days off could/would be spent enjoying what the Sunshine Coast has to offer - some of the best beaches in the world; National Parks and the greater Mary Valley farming community. So much is on offer for tourists, there are too many to list! Also, We have many friends in the Mary Valley that have diverse farming practices... Dairy, horses, cattle and sheep, lime farming etc.

We have volunteer availability anytime throughout the year, so get in touch if you are interested and we can go from there!
