Hi my name is Stu. I am a dairy farmer and breeder of Jersey cows living in the peaceful Waitaha Valley on the West Coast of the South Island, NZ. My farm is situated 1 1/2 hours drive north of Franz Joseph Glacier or 40 minutes south of Hokitika. The busy calving season will begin early August when the herd of 210 jersey cows will give birth to their baby calves during August and September. The next few months will be busy milking the herd twice daily and rearing young calves. If you are interested I can offer a 'real life' experience on my farm where I am always happy to teach you to milk cows if you are interested. We all work as a team on the farm and also in the house. Comfortable accommodation, food, work clothes and boots are supplied. Having a sense of humour is a real advantage on this farm. Preference will be given to a person who is motivated and willing to learn. If you enjoy this lifestyle I am happy for you to stay for several weeks or longer. Please phone me or leave a message with your phone number and I will return you call. I cannot reply to emails as I have no internet connection. Enjoy your travels around NZ and I look forward to meeting you

Happy Days
