Phillip and Kim established Farm Sitters – Australia after identifying a need to support property owners and managers in the opportunity to leave the farm. The desire to assist farm owners and managers to ‘have a break’ for health, education or family reasons was the driver to create a business that would facilitate this important need. In addition, identified that many retired farmers, managers, rural and regional residents had many skills and experience to fill a void. This has created an opportunity for many experienced and skilled people to continue to be active in agriculture in their retirement.
Following establishment of business in 2004 Farm Sitters – Australia has enjoyed continual growth. The business is supported by long-term clients while maintaining a focus on providing the key core requirements, ‘Quality Farm Sitters providing Security and Peace of Mind’.
Phillip and Kim with their family reside in Dalby, Qld. Their three busy teenage children have a love animals and the bush and have grown up with a solid understanding of the importance of connecting and supporting rural and regional families.
Farm Sitters – Australia is the number one provider of short term Caretakers across Australia.
