Across Australia, our farmers and rural communities need your assistance.

In many areas, it’s almost impossible to find people with trades that will drive the distances to do work. On the other hand there are tens of thousands of grey nomads, holiday makers, tradies on holiday, even backpackers who have skills that are willing to help but just don’t know where their help could be best put to use.

So we’re building a volunteer army of people keen to help the bush, it’s right here at www.FarmArmy.com.au

In late 2014, Buy a Bale teamed up with other service provides and several corporations to run a Farm Rescue event at Lightning Ridge in NSW and Mitchell in QLD. Each trip provided volunteers with a unique experience by visiting some of the worst drought areas of Australia and providing help to struggling farmers. Skills such as plumbers, carpenters, mechanics, painters and fencers were put to good use and provided real value for the drought affected property owners involved.

The Farm Army is expanding on this one off event and has developed this site to provide farmers and helpers with a single place to come together to help each other. Some jobs will be full time, some jobs will be one off’s, some jobs require a special skill set, other jobs just need a pair of hands and a willingness to help, some jobs come with accommodation offers, whilst others will require you to find your own place to lay your head. All jobs will come with a friendly smile, a chance to make new friends and a large sense of gratitude for a job well done and knowing that you have helped someone in need.

So why not get involved?

If you’re a farmer and you have a job that needs doing, List it with us.

If you have skills and are interested in offering your time, a bit of sweat and are keen to meet some great outback / rural people, register for our Job Notifications emails in the sidebar to the right.
