Real Kiwi Farm Experience!

Payment: Paid Position ($24)
Location: Te Awamutu
Region: Waikato/Coromandel
Experience: Limited Experience Necessary
Contact: 0212700362
Listing Added: 31/05/2022

Are you looking for a real kiwi farm experience?  Then join our team during our calving period this July!  

You will be working with four friendly kiwis during our busiest but most rewarding time of the year.  We have 700 cows that will all calve over three months (July-September).  Daily duties will include (but are not limited to) calf-rearing, milking cows, collecting cows and calves from the paddock, and general cleaning and farm duties. We are an environmentally conscious farm, and plant 500 native trees every June, so if you can start earlier than July you'll also be able to get stuck into that too (lucky you!). 

We have a fully furnished, warm one-bedroom unit with free power available located on the farm, with incredible views over the farm and Mt Pirongia.  We are located 10 minutes away from Te Awamutu, close to Waitomo caves, Raglan beach, Rotorua, and just a 2 hr drive from Auckland, so there is plenty to do on your time off. We love hosting international visitors and will be sure to have you over for dinner a few times with our young family during the busy period to make sure you're eating well! 

The position is full-time from June/July to September, and we are flexible with hours worked and days off.  If you are wanting ongoing casual work after September we are also happy to work in with what works for you. 

If this sounds like a bit of you, then get in touch!  We would love to hear from you. 

- Chris & Rach Numan
