*** Looking for HelpX NOW! ***

*** We need more hands to help on our farm during these busy months ***

Hello, we are Chris & Diane of Mt Beckworth Free Range.

Our mixed breed farm is situated at the foothills of Mt Beckworth in the beautiful Central Goldfields region of Victoria.

On our farm we raise free range pigs, goats, geese, ducks, chickens and some deer.

We ran a successful crowd funding campaign, raising funds to enable us to build an on-farm butchery. ( You can read all about our story and the project here )

We now need your help with the day to day running of the farm to enable us to time to complete the build of our on-farm butchery!!

Jobs include feeding the pigs, caring for livestock and general farm tasks. We always have farrowing sows and lots of piglets that require attention and many baby goat kids, goslings, chickens and ducklings at certain times of the year. We would expect you to work for around 5-6 hours per day, 5 days per week, and stay for a minimum of three weeks.

We look forward to sharing with you our knowledge and experiance raising a variety of animals free range and working with nature as closely as possible.

We would also welcome HelpX with building or construction skills to help with the actual butchery build, although this experiance or involvment is not essential.

We offer a comfortable private room in our home which will accomodate either a couple, or single helper (no children). Meals will be shared, mixed diet.

Our farm is located in a wonderful part of the world with lots of natural beauty to explore including Mt Beckworth Scenic Reserve. We are surrounded by many small heritage towns, many with weekend markets and are also conveniently located within close proximity to Ballarat. The city of Ballarat is a major regional hub which offers everything you could want for in the way of shops, art galleries, cafes and entertainment. We would encourage you to explore our region while staying with us at Mt Beckworth Free Range.

Please get in touch if you would like to come Help at Mt Beckworth Free Range!
