We are a family of 4 and we are looking for a keen person to help us out around the house, in the garden and possibly on the farm. We are Dairy farmers and we live on the beautiful Canterbury Plains, 40 mins from Central City Christchurch and 40 mins from Mt Hutt Skifield. We are milking 600 cows. We have 3 full-time staff on the farm, and during calving we have an extra 2 people rearing calves. The main things we would want help with include weeding, gardening (planting vegetables, mowing lawns etc), helping with children and cleaning around the house. Our children are 3 and 5 years old, they love being outdoors. We would love someone who likes spending time with children (both boys). Our house is nice and cosy (it is just 8 years old with fire and heat pump). You would have your own room with internet access, shared bathroom with children. There would be 4 hours work per day in exchange for food and board. I do all the cooking for the family (and one of our workers). I like cooking fresh vegetables which I source locally and meat from our farm (beef). We buy the rest of our meat (chicken and lamb) from Christchurch supermarkets.
