We have a small sheep farm run by three generations of a family. Nana looks after 2 young kids (4 & 7) while single mother works in town (Christchurch). We have approximately 100 ewes who are having their lambs in August and September and we are looking for help to look after the children and house while Nana looks after the sheep on the farm and Mum is at work.

We need help doing the following....
-Looking after the kids Monday-Thursday while Mum has to go to work and Nana is working out on the farm (before and after school/preschool)
-Basic help looking after some the animals; dog, cat, chickens. Plus horses if you are an experienced horse rider.
-Cooking the evening meal
-House work (vacuuming, cleaning etc)
-Some farm jobs if you are interested or keen to learn.

Individuals ideally. We'd need a minimum stay of 2 weeks. The help we need would be all day Mon-Thurs with Fri/Sat/Sun completely free to do as you please.

We are looking for help for September or earlier if you're keen

We live in a great location near Darfield, which is about 45 mins from the edge of Chistchurch. Everything will be provided for you (food, washing etc).

*******We are only 40 minutes away from the ski fields at Porters Pass and Mount Hutt - so if you're a skier or snow boarder this might be perfect for you!*****

Horse riding or lessons (weather permitting) and bicycle available as part of the package plus heaps more! Car, Mobile phone and wifi provided for duration of stay.

You must speak a good standard of English, have full drivers licence, be a non-smoker and have no criminal convictions.

Experience of looking after active outdoors kids is essential - my children get wet and muddy, they climb trees, do stunts on their bikes and scooters and like to make a lot of chaos! They are fun and smart but need someone to look after them that has lots of energy :-)

You would have your own room and no living costs.

I look forward to hearing from you!
