General Farm Work
General Farm work is typically with livestock, farm equipment, machinery or infrastructure but can also be supporting the farmer and family in their day to day life as well.
Livestock includes cattle, sheep, horses and other animals
Machinery includes tractors, dirt bikes, quad bikes, Utes and other machinery.
Infrastructure includes fencing, water supply, irrigation, buildings etc.
General Farm work gives an opportunity to be part of Australian Country life living and working closely day to day with Australian Farmers, often as a general assistant. You will need to be motivated, willing to learn and apply yourself and able to cope with some challenges. This type of farm work can be great fun, but it can be challenging too.
Employer farmers are looking for responsible workers who are willing to apply themselves, work hard and learn fast.
You do not need previous skill or experience, but it helps.
(These types of work are quite different to fruit picking and normally requires a different mindset and way of working)
