Diverse mixed farm on the NSW Mid North Coast

This is the Deal

We are market farmers who grow a range of seasonal vegetables, raise pigs, meat chickens and laying hens, and travel to Sydney each week to sell our produce at our weekly market stall.

We have a small team here at Near River, and have a constant flow of international guests out to experience the Australian way of life.

We are located 4.5 hours north of Sydney, 45 minutes inland from Port Macquarie.

In return for 5 hours work each day, we'll provide you with 3 meals a day, accommodation in your own room within our home, and limited internet access. For each week that you stay you'll have one day off, aside from basic chores. You may be asked to cook one meal a week.

As we are a diverse farm, you'll be involved in a whole range of activities - variety is the spice of life.

Welcome Skills: commitment, sense of humor
