We are Justin/Angela. We are running a farm in Makarewa, 15 minutes from Invercargill by car. This is a peaceful and beautiful place away from the noise but not so far from the city.
We are looking for a helping hand at our farm. ( IT IS NOT VACANCIES AT THE MOMENT)
We need help to clean, tidy up our garden, around the house.
Some house cleaning and if you like cooking it would be a plus.
The gardening involves:
-Picking branches/leaves/pruning roses and some trees/general tidy up in the garden.
(Experienced with a chainsaw would be a huge plus but not essential if you are prepared to learn)
-Cutting and splitting wood.
We offer to helpers work 4 or 6 hours a day on a 6 day a week and you will have one day off a week. We are quite flexible so we can work with your travelling plans.
We offer your own private accommodation with the household items. This is a nice home and lunch is always provided. Not junk food or alcohol. Just Good coffee.
If you are looking to discover Southland, come and stay with us! :) Please, only people that are mature, respectful of others, responsible, with a great attitude as this is a farm and physical work is involved.
Non-smokers and no drugs of any kind.
Southland is a beautiful place, Invercargill City has a really nice museum and nice cafe shops and restaurants. You can go to Stewart Island and Uva Island, Otatara beach, Nugget Point, The Caitlin's, etc.
There are many walks and trails in this area that you will enjoy.
This farm offers both sides; a quite place if that is what you want to do and rest from your trips and work with us while you learn.
PS: We can pick you up and drop you off but if you have a car it is better.
Hope to see you soon :)
