Sheep Farm Helper

Payment: Accommodation & Paid ($350/week + full board)
Location: Leeston
Region: Christchurch & Canterbury
Experience: Limited Experience Necessary
Listing Added: 11/07/2019

We are a busy farming family looking for someone to come and help out for 3-4 weeks over Lambing time (July-Aug). Start ASAP. You will be assisting the farmer - moving stock, feeding out to sheep, feeding orphan lambs. You need to be fit and enthusiastic. There is some heavy handling of sheep, running after fast lambs, working in all weathers, and some long days at the peak of lambing. Experience is not necessarily required as you will be working mostly with the farmer. Need to have a NZ drivers licence, and be able to drive a manual ute. Good understanding and fluency in English. 

We are a family with 3 kids - Kate who is away at school during the week, Haig, 12, is our darling special needs child, wheelchair bound and requires full personal care, and Natalie, 10, a busy child! You will be part of the family while you stay - sharing a family bathroom. Single sleepout accommodation. Sharing meals and the wifi. You will be given 1 1/2 days off a week and the opportunity to go away skiing or sightseeing. Own transport an advantage. We will help with fuel. 

We have had backpackers for many years at lambing time, and really enjoy having someone new in the family to share our slice of NZ life with, and to learn about your life too.
