People say we have the best view in the Macedon Ranges! We have panoramic views over the Great Dividing range and the foothills of Mt Macedon. Our 120 acre farm has 600 chooks, 2 horses, four dogs and a cat.
we need a reliable and physically able person or couple to look after the animals while we are gone.
The chooks – feed them with buckets of grain from the silo. Collect eggs. Wash, grade and pack eggs. Sounds a lot but we have equipment that makes that job pretty doable. The Chook work takes about 2-3 hours a day.
Horses – Tiga and Red are beautiful horses with exceptional temperaments. They are low maintenance, just requiring rugging and feeding hay. If you know how to longe a horse then they would benefit from exercise.
Then there is Paddy and Lucy; the Maremma dogs who look after the chooks. They just need feeding. They know their job.
Milo is a boisterous GSP and Marley is a Lab cross. They stay in the house yard except for walks. Milo needs to be walked on a halti as he is strong. They just need feeding and a walk each day. They sleep inside in a crate.
We have two highland cows and some Angus. These need to be checked every day and ensure they have water, which is pumped from the dam.
Finally there is Mittens the farm cat. He gets locked up at night otherwise he annoys the neighbour’s cats.
Training will be provided.
You will enjoy our 4 bedroom 2 bathroom house with two living areas, spa, Foxtel and Netflix. Wifi available.
There is a gator to get around the farm, a ride on mower if you like mowing and a tractor.
If you are handy and like to be busy, there’s plenty to do.
