November December are usually picking time for the fruit, sheep work like marking and tailing lambs happen all year round, stud sheep are shown during the year usually around November at the Agricultural shows. We have a meat breed sheep and no wool. We would like to offer live in accommodation and food and the opportunity to experience farming in Australia in exchange for some help. We would like you to become part of our family and come and enjoy our hospitality, our traditional South African food culture and our Australian farmer hospitality, experience 2 cultures in one country. Stay can be for one week with the possibility of extending for longer. Payment on piece jobs are done, reimbursement for accommodation and all food supplied will be taken out of pay, payslip will be provided and if needed completing of paperwork for second year visa can be done. Hope to hear from you.Picking season will be starting around beginning of December, comparable payrates per piece but for a average picker it will boil down to $21 per hour. Welcome to come earlier and that will secure your picking place for the season.
