UPDATE: We do not need helpers at the moment but hope to begin planting trees in May - it depends on the weather.

We can pick you up in Young (morning XPT train/coach service from Sydney or Melbourne) or Grenfell (afternoon train/coach service from Sydney)
------------------------------------------------
This is a wool and wheat property about 28kms from Young.
We have enjoyed the company of lots of Helpers over the past 7 years and many have returned for a second visit - one came four times.
We enjoy simple home cooking with our own fresh ingredients and encourage helpers to share recipes from their own country.
Helpers are welcome anytime to weed, mow, paint, wash windows etc.
General farm work is available depending on your interest - mostly with sheep, cattle and working dogs.
Finding kangaroos to photograph is a favourite activity with many Helpers.
We offer two bedrooms opening onto a verandah overlooking the garden, a modern shared bathroom (for helpers only), and tea-making facilities with fridge. You will however be welcomed as part of the family and so meals will be in the main home. Free Wifi is available for emailing and skype only as we do have a limit on our monthly usage.
There is a pool and a rough a tennis court for a hit and giggle - certainly not Wimbledon standard, but ideal for petonque!
My husband has a good grasp of French and would welcome the opportunity to practice.
There is no public transport but we are able to take you with us to Young when we go shopping, about once a week.
Hours are flexible based on an average of 5 hours a day in exchange for full board and lodging and lots of laughs.
