##### from end of Feb 2018 we would welcome a HANDY PERSON to help with sorting/ tidying/ cleaning/ packing up workshop, garage and farm buildings as we will be moving in May 2018.

We are looking for ONE sociable helper (25+) who is energetic and feels comfortable about doing what needs doing around the place without much direction, someone who is confident with general housework and maintenance type of work and doesnít mind getting stuck in.

We prefer short stays up to 10-14 days.But if things work out and feel right we can be flexible about longer stays.

We have an old dog and a cat that live in the house with us, so you will have to be happy with that. We also have 2 sheep, chickens and 140 dairy cows on our small (non organic) dairy farm.

While this is not a farm position you will have the chance to experience and share in our rural lifestyle and farm.

Our location is central (within 1 hr max drive) to many places of interest, including e.g Hobbitton, Mt Maunganui, Rotorua, Taupo, Hamilton and 2 hrs from Whakapapa Ski fields and Tongariro Crossing in the National park.
