We are situated on the stunning Otago Peninsula and have 100 acres of farmland. The help we require is some basic garden maintenance, wood gathering, weed-eating, spring cleaning etc. If you can use a chainsaw and drive a quad that would be really useful too. We are an animal besotted family with 3 horses,9 ducks, 2 cats and a dog (please NOTE our dog is a retired drugs dog so if you use even occasionally, then please don't bother offering your services !). Some equestrian knowledge would be good but not necessary as you will be helping with the daily care of the horses.

We find it works much better if you are a couple. We are not on a main road so helpers MUST have their own transport. We have a lot of interesting wildlife and places to visit close by, but all do require a car to get there.

You need to be comfortable using your initiative as you will mostly be unsupervised. As this is an exchange, we simply ask that you donate 5 hours of help and in return we will provide you with scrummy food and brand new accommodation with a queen bed and your own private bathroom. Please bear in mind that we will all share in the domestics particularly clearing up after meals ! Non-smokers only thanks. Also as we are a very busy household with school children stuff going on, we really don't have the time to separately cater for special dietary requirements ie vegetarians, gluten/lactose issues - SORRY! We start out with a week's trial - this seems to suit our helpers - it's just in case you don't like us or vice versa!!
