Hello and welcome,
We are a family owned dairy farm milking around 440 cows. We have teenagers at home and often a school exchange student. As we are also homeschoolers, there is always something happening. We try to maintain a holistic approach to farming but we are not organic. We are looking for singles or couples that can contribute to our busy farming household and can stay from one to several weeks.In the near future there will be tractor driving, planting , gardening and general maintenance happening. If that sounds like you, don't hesitate to email us. We would love to accommodate you. We also have gardening and general farm labour, building, engineering or painting. We are happy to teach or upskill anyone who wants to seek dairy or farm employment or learn to drive a tractor. Our Dairy is a very modern well equipped rotary with a water recycling and effluent minimisation system.
We are situated around an hour from Te Anau and Manapouri areas and also Invercargill. During the summer we like water activities, tramping and fishing all of which can be found close by. If you like making music and are missing your instrument while you travel, we have more than one available to play. Accommodation is in our family home for couples or adjacent sleepout for singles. Food to be shared with the family and as part of our family meals. WIFI is available for reasonable use and there is good cellphone reception. Your own transport and a driver's license is preferred but we will collect you from the bus in Winton or Invercargill if needed and it fits around our activities. You are welcome anytime of the year.
