Farm Help In Exchange For Accommodation & Meals

Guanaba Farm Guanaba, Gold Coast

Job Description

Updated Feb 2020: We are seeking a medium to long stay Helper or Helpers (single or couple). We have been hosting since 1998 and we're grateful to say we've had some really exceptional visitors from many countries. We are lucky to have a beautiful farm, our property is 14 acres in the hinterland of the Gold Coast, just on the ocean side of Mt Tamborine. There are horses which you may like to feed and brush, peacocks and gardens. We don't have dogs so we have abundant wildlife who gather here daily.
There is so much to do on a farm, we have lots of projects on the go at the moment, from building stone gateways to house renovations, gardening, property maintenance, animal care, housework, window cleaning, mowing, whatever we are doing at the time.
Ideally our day usually runs like this: 8am -morning farm chores; Smoko 10am; projects or maintenance -10.30; Lunch 1pm; projects/maintenance/afternoon chores 2pm. usually about 5 - 6 hrs. Two days off each week. In saying that everything here is pretty laid back, you'll be helping a farming couple in their 50's potting around doing interesting projects & everyday farm stuff, you'll become part of our family while you are here. We are the opposite of the slave-driving factory farms. Your accommodation is in a 40th motorhome. It is self contained with shower, kitchen, toilet, queen bed, fridge & stove.
Sorry we cannot cater for vegetarians or vegans.
Helpers prepare their own breakfast, we prepare all other meals which we eat together around a table. We ourselves are gluten free people due to food allergies, so sometimes our food is modified for that reason & slightly different to yours.
No smokers please.
We will need to see your ID when you arrive and take a photo of it.
We don't usually book you too far in advance because over the years we've had so many travellers change their plans and not turn up. Contact us if you are on the Gold Coast or in Brisbane or coming this way.
Unfortunately we are not in the right postcode for 2nd holiday visa.

What you MUST bring:
Your passport or ID
WORK boots
Long Pants
Hat or cap
Raincoat or poncho
Insect repellent
Toiletries
Water bottle

Please don't arrive without these things

Thanks for your wonderful experiences over the years
and safe travelling to you all .
