Fitzroy Falls area farm (posted 9/7/19)

Home > Classifieds > Help Wanted

Hi, we are Sam and Katrina Sparke (plus 4 kids) at Redleaf farm in Fitzroy Falls. 
We raise free range pigs, highland cattle, sheep and a few horses, dogs and various fowl. 
Sam is away a lot with work, and we are looking for a flexible and responsible person or couple to help out on the farm over the next few months. We have a busy few months ahead and several trips away for family celebrations, sporting events and school events, and are looking for someone to keep the farm running smoothly when we are not able to be here. Of course, you’d be welcome to help out while we are home also, and to ‘park up’ in a lovely spot on the farm, or use our shearing shed accommodation if preferred. We are happy to be flexible with duties – as long as you can be around the times we need to be away.
We have previously had backpacker farmgirl helpers, but the cost is now prohibitive, and we prefer someone more responsible.
The main jobs would be feeding animals daily (which the kids currently manage before school) and weekend collection of produce for pigs from a local store. We also have farm stay accommodation, so there may be some housekeeping duties for changeovers required. And of course, there is always a long ‘list’ of extra farm jobs if you are really enthusiastic!
The Southern Highlands is a lovely area, with plenty of great wineries, galleries and national parks to explore….
We are happy to be flexible with the arrangements for accommodation, and can offer ‘food and board’ with utilities in exchange for the help. If you can also occasionally help with housekeeping and children then even better!
If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, please get in touch with
