Hey everyone, we are looking for 2 enthusiastic, easy going helpers that would like to arrive some time towards the end of this week and stay for about 3-4 weeks. Email us if you are interested. Looking forward to hearing from you :)
We are an award winning business on Stewart Island. We smoke and prepare local salmon to sell it at farmers markets and retail outlets throughout New Zealand.
Our motto is
"Live the life you love, Love the life you live."
We run free range chickens for their eggs and are in the process of developing an organic garden.
We also keep bees and harvest honey if it is a good season.
We provide good accommodation and meals in return for an enthusiastic and good work ethic.
We ask for people with a good understanding of English.
At our commercial factory you will be working with our full time employee Sandra doing fresh salmon, pin boning, curing and vacuum packing the smoked salmon. As well as cleaning of course is a big part of a food business.
Depending on how much production we have, there will be days when we have other work such as gardening, keeping the lawns or woodwork. We also encourage beekeeping experience for those helpers who are keen if there is work with the bees.
We also run Hilltop Backpackers and often require someone to pick up backpackers or help with the cleaning and running of Hilltop.
Length of stay and hours of work:
We ask that you stay for a MINIMUM OF 3 WEEKS if possible.
The hours of work are usually 8.00 am to lunch time. You all have the afternoon off to yourself to do anything you wanna do. Explore the island, relax, read, go for a swim or walk, play cards, anything you wanna do :).
There are times we require you to be flexible in the hours of work.
We work as a team and each person is important to the smooth running of Stewart Island Smoked Salmon.
Accommodation and Food:
You stay in a shared room with other wwoofers\helpers at our Hilltop Backpackers.
We provide all groceries for all of your meals. Cooking is up to you and our employee that lives with you. Usually we will take turns in cooking, so if you are a keen chef, you´re always welcome :).
Please let us know if you have any dietary requirements prior to arriving.
We look forward to hearing from you :)
