Family sheep farm and Contracting Business in lovely central Otago.

WE ARE CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR PEOPLE WITH LANDSCAPING EXPERIENCE.
PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT US IF YOU DON'T HAVE YOUR OWN VEHICLE. IT IS NOT AN OPTION TO CATCH PUBLIC TRANSPORT OR TO HITCH HIKE TO OUR PROPERTY.

We have a lot of projects we wish to undertake in the house, garden and on the farm. Some of our projects include splitting firewood, stacking firewood, clearing overgrown gardens, building vegetable gardens, planting gardens, landscaping, cleaning, helping with children...

It is likely you will have the opportunity to spend time on the farm but please note our Helpx jobs don't generally include much farm work as experience is necessary.
We live just over 1 hour from Dunedin in the Macraes with access both from the south via Middlemarch (the start/end point of the Central Otago Rail Trail) or north via Palmerston. We are about 2 1/2 hours drive from Queenstown or Wanaka.
Accommodation is in the house with us as we have unfortunately rented our cottage out.
We expect 4 hours productive work per day for food and accommodation and help with meal preparation and dishes.
The closest village is Macraes Flat which is about 10 minutes’ drive, Middlemarch is 20 minutes and Palmerston is 35 minutes. Middlemarch is the start/end of the Central Otago Rail Trail. There is a fishing spot very close by.
I rehome ex race horses so would love someone with horse knowledge but not important.
We also would like someone who has experience with babysitting and cooking. Initiative is a must. Someone who can find something useful to do in the house without being asked.

Please send us a message through helpX rather than phone call. Also it really helps if you have a photo, and can let us know the dates you would like to stay:)
We would prefer singles or couples for a minimum of one week’s stay. You will need your own vehicle as we want you to be able to get out and about and see the sites in your spare time. Our policy is not to take people without any references and we prefer people (or at least 1 of a couple) to be over 25yrs old. While Help references are preferred, if this is your first Helpx job and you don't have references, then please provide us with detail as to your relevant experience e.g. a C.V.

We look forward to hearing from you.
