Payment: $16.50hr + 8% holiday pay Location: Darfield, Canterbury
Region: Christchurch & Canterbury Experience: No Experience Necessary


We are looking for a motivated individual or couple to help out on our dairy farm due to our current backpackers carrying on with their travels. The position is available to start around the 24th of September and would last for 3 months or longer for the right applicants.

We are located at Darfield, 30 minutes west of Christchurch. The gateway to Canterburys Ski fields and the West Coast of New Zealand.

Accommodation is provided on farm in a smoke free shared house with power and broadband internet at $75per week.

No experience in farming is required but suitable experience would be rewarded accordingly. The position requires a decent level of fitness and physical ability!

A typical day would include collecting calves, feeding calves, milking cows, hosing the milking shed and general farm activities.  

This job requires somebody with a hard working, no nonsense attitude, who won't stand around watching others! For that we offer an awesome group of people to work with and a chance to get involved in the kiwi lifestyle! 

Typical hours worked would be 10 hours a day. We work a 6 and 2 roster meaning 6 days at work then 2 days off . The day typically starts at 5am,  with an hour for breakfast at 8am, an hour for lunch at 12pm then finshing up for the day around 5pm. Having your own vehicle is ideal but not necessary so that you can go adventuring or to the supermarket on your days off.

The pay rate for this position would be $16.50 hour plus 8% holiday pay.

A sense of humor is encouraged!
