Our farm is a quiet block just 15 minutes drive from Kempsey and on the way to South West Rocks. Beautiful beaches at Crescent Head and Hat Head are an easy 30 minute drive away. Kempsey has 3 supermarkets and good facilities and there is a good range of eating venues in the area. The ideal base to explore the beautiful mid north coast!
The main thing is to have someone around to keep an eye on things just in case. There are a few morning and evening jobs that can be quickly done before /after a day exploring. Or if you want, just sit on the verandah and enjoy the rural surroundings.
Mornings: let the chooks out, feed the 2 livestock guardian dogs
Evenings: lock up chooks, feed fish
Every couple of days: water some plants; check food supply for chooks and guinea fowl
Daily: keep an eye on the herd of goats (25). They will all be wormed prior to our departure so hopefully there will be no issues with them. No special feeding is required for them.
We would ideally like someone here 5 - 7 days before we leave to get the livestock guardians used to having strangers around.
There is a self contained cottage with microwave and gas stove for cooking. There is nowhere to keep pets away from the dogs and pets are not permitted inside so it is not really suited for people with pets. The property is not suitable for children. There is parking on site for caravan or trailer with access to cottage facilities. Mobile coverage is available.
