We are looking to get away for 3 weeks in July or August and need a capable retired farmer or farm hand to take care of our property.
We have 120 acres between the Great Dividing Range and the Macedon Ranges plus 57 acres just down the road. We run 900 free range hens, Angus and Highland cattle and have 4 dogs, 2 horses and a cat.
You would have free use of our 4 bedroom home with Netflix, Foxtel, pool, spa, open fire and split system heating or you are welcome to park your van on our property.
We require someone to:
1. Feed hens and collect eggs daily (about an hour’s work)
2. Wash, grade and pack eggs. We have an automatic washer and grader. Training will be provided. A local delivery may be required in our van. (About 3-5 hours per week)
3. Feed and rug horses as required.
4. Feed dogs and cat
5. Monitor cattle and check troughs.
Farm equipment includes tractor, gator and Ute.
One of our dogs is a GSP and is boisterous but we are working on his training. The other is a lab X and she can open all doors, even sliding doors when they’re latched!!
