Our farm is located at Merton in the foothills of the Strathbogie Ranges in North-East Victoria about 50 minutes drive from the snowfields of Mt Buller.
Merton is a small farming community with the tourist town of Mansfield about 30 minutes away by car. Three other country towns Alexandra, Yea and Euroa are a similar distance. Melbourne is just under two hours drive away. The area is extremely pretty with farms scattered among the rolling hills and the valleys. Merton village is very small with a few houses, an old church, one general store and a public recreation area that includes tennis courts.
Our farm offers a true piece of Australian rural life with more than 330 hectares where we have an assortment of chickens, retired horses, two dogs and a cat.
We also share the farm with numerous kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas, wombats, parrots and the occasional koala.
We would prefer to have a couple. As payment for your work we are offering accommodation and meals. The work and the times are flexible but about 4 hours daily. The jobs would mainly be helping with gardening, and general farm work depending on your skills and interests along with what needs to be done. With plenty of time to explore this lovely area of Australia.
We have a separate studio for guests and helpers which is fully furnished and equipped and includes bedding and towels.
Being able to drive would be great and we can organise transport to our farm.
The weather can be 4 seasons in one day. We do provide working gloves.
