We are a young married couple who just started taking over the family sheep and beef farm. I - Gudrun (aka Cookie) am originally from Germany myself - but you'll only see me on the weekends as I've got a full time Vet Job a couple hours away. So you'll be spending most of the time with my husband Sam and our 2 pet and 8 work dogs.
The farm is a 1000acre and about 15 min from Waipukurau and 30min from the beach (Porangahau)


You'll be helping with everyday work on the Farm which currently includes a lot of maintenance and developing work such as fencing, mowing paddocks, general tidy up tasks.
Work with animals won't come short either as we are always busy with moving stock or handling them for a varity of reason (Drench, shear, wean, dock)

We are preferable looking for somebody with experience in the agricultural sector who has worked with machinery before - but it is not a must - as long as you are keen to learn new task we'd love to have you here.

Some days may be longer to get a Job done but then you would just have the next day off - we usually have a real good balance with work and fun. Preferably you would stay for longer (2- 4) weeks - and there are many great places around Hawkes Bay to discover.

We offer a nice bedroom - also with the option of living in a seperate unit with lots of privacy - meals are included. We are more than happy to pick you up and drop you of at the bus stop in Waipukurau and if you are here for a long term - a vehicle may be available (NZ or international drivers licence needed)

Just get in touch with us and we can talk about more details :)
