In an effort to reduce stress on farmers, Buy a Bale is seeking suitably qualified or experienced people to act as farm sitters. We’re asking those interested to register on our site and we’ll forward your details to farmers seeking a break.
The current stresses being faced by rural families come in many forms, not just lack of feed or lack of income but also in the ability to get away from the farm. Many farmers have spoken with us about the need for a break but many feel they can’t leave while the property is in drought and while remaining animals need daily assistance.
In some ways taking a break while drought is gripping a farm is hard to do but the mental health benefits of trusting your property to a friend or qualified person can relieve some of the anguish and ongoing stress.
If you’re interested in becoming part of our Farm Sitting program please register as a farmer or a sitter through the following forms
Thanks for your interest and help.
