Our family lives on a sheep and beef farm high in the hills in Central Otago, and I would love some help around the home and garden, and with our animals.  

We have kids so it will be great if you are into spending time and interacting with them. The youngest is three and the oldest 18.  I look forward to them meeting you and different cultures and languages from across the globe.

The work I usually get help with is gardening and general housework.  This can be hard and physical work,  so you need to be fit and healthy and willing to get a bit of dirt on your hands. A few old clothes and boots are always a good idea too.

There are also other jobs like house painting, fencing, chainsaw work, tree planting, building/renovation jobs, horse work/training/hacking out, plus general housework and childcare.  What you do will depend on what you are interested in and we are up to, and what is happening that week.

I am looking for 1-2 people to come at a time.  I am looking for keen, fit, non smoking, willing and motivated people to come and stay. English is neccessary, but another language a bonus, drivers licence and a car would be great but not necessary. Your contribution is usually 4 hours in the morning (8am - 12pm) in exchange for accommodation and food,  but this can change depending on what the family/farm is doing for the day - maybe one full day working,  then the next off for you to explore the surrounding area.  

We have a wee cottage/sleepout for you to sleep in, and you will share our home/kitchen for meals.

I look forward to meeting you!
