About the workproject

We need 2 volunteers

We are a farming family on a 2,000 hectare property on Kangaroo Island.
We farm free range hens for eggs, sheep & a few beef cattle, we also grow crops for grain to feed back to our poultry. We have Maremma stock guardian dogs protecting our chooks from predators.
We are looking for help with cleaning, gardening & tidying up the grounds & also some general farm help.
The farm house is currently used as office & employee lunch & wash room & accommodation for helpers. Family live nearby in another area of the farm.
Would suit couples or two friends travelling together. Our farm is located 25km from Kangaroo Islands main town of Kingscote so your own transport would be a great advantage, although there is a bus going past the farm gate twice a day.
Experience farm life on Kangaroo Island while interacting with farmers & farm hands. Learn about pastured free range egg farming. Opportunity to explore this beautiful part of South Australia.
