We are looking for helpers over the next couple of weeks.

The main jobs will be some help with preparation painting and wallpapering of a small house. Depending on dates there maybe some help required in garden.

Would suit single traveller, two friends or a couple.

Any building or renovation experience would be great but we are more importantly looking for people with good attitude, work hard and we will look after you well.

Sophie will work with you sometimes but we have a young baby so there will be times you are working by yourself.

Lots to see and do our sheep and beef farm and also within the Catlin's area, walking, wildlife and the sea on our doorstep.

Accomodation is a very comfortable self contained cottage near to our house so you can have you own space.
We expect 4-5 hours work per day for food and accommodation. Normally we ask for help from 8.30am to 12.30pm although we can be flexible to this and also flexible to working more hours in one day to take other days off.

We have our own vegetable garden (organic) and eat meat off the farm.

Flexible with length of stay, we generally like helpers staying a minimum of three days up to a week but we have had some stay longer this will depend a lot on the season and what's happening on the farm at the time.

You MUST have your own vehicle as we want you to get out and about and make the most of the amazing place we live in.

We are located in the Caitlin's a 20 minutes drive from Owaka, 25 minutes drive from Balclutha, with fishing, tramping, surfing all very close. Although not to far from civilisation we live in a remote area. We do not have cellphone reception at house (10 mins down the road we do).
When you message us please confirm you have your own vehicle and tell us your background and what you have experience in.


Todd and Sophie
