Description

Looking for a caretaker/ farm sitter / stockman / odd job-mechanical all rounder.  Initially you will be needed to watch our place while we are away for a short time. You would be required to check fences, waters, and livestock each day. Also as we are in drought you will be required to do daily dry lick and molasses runs. Also water the garden. Dates for farm sitting are 19/09/2017 to 29/09/2017 .

If you are a good fit there is also the opportunity to stay on to help with swinging gates, straining existing fences, rotate cattle, fencing jobs, and general machinery maintainence. My husband is a bit of an inventor so someone who is interested in tinkering with machinery and welding would be great! We are also looking to redesign our cattle yards so if your keen and physically up to it that is on the cards as well. However the bigger fencing and yard work can also be done by contractors but it would be nice if you were interested/experienced as you maybe able to supervise. We can offer fully self-sufficient modern accommodation and for some tasks a wage to be negotiated. There is also garden work and a couple of odd handyman jobs around the house to complete. If this sounds interesting to you please feel free to get in contact. Thanks Jaci & Scott
