Hi! We are a Kiwi husband and wife with a 6 month old daughter and a 4 year old Huntaway dog. We look after a dairy farm in Staveley, which is a small town close to the mountains. It’s a beautiful part of the country.
We have about 700 cows on our farm. Every year the cows have calves and we need some help to feed the calves. We have four staff who work for us. We are looking for someone to help from early August to late October. In exchange for accommodation and food, we ask that you help us for about 4 hours a day. You would have your own room and we have WiFi you can use.
There is no public transport in our area so you would need your own vehicle. There is one café in Staveley. The closest town is Methven which is about 15 minutes by car. A popular ski field, Mt Hutt, is also about 15 minutes away. Christchurch is 1 hour 15 minutes by car. The Mt Somers Track is about 10 minutes from our house.
We are a very friendly couple who enjoy having people to stay. We are looking forward to getting to know our Helpxer.
Libbi and Dallas Wood
