Preference will be given to helpers with a genuine interest in learning about NZ dairy farming and animal husbandry. We love sharing what we do and prefer to host helpers with a desire to learn.

300 cow family run dairy farm close to the Southern Scenic Route, between Invercargill and the Caitlins.
We offer a family environment with opportunities for farm work, housework, gardening and cooking. There is a wide variety of work available. Working with the animals of course, weed control, plus fencing work, painting, carpentry and lots of different small tasks to complete. If outdoor work doesn't appeal, help in the house with cooking and cleaning is always appreciated, and the small, developing garden offers a third alternative. We try to fit the work to each helper's skills and interests, and keep things varied and interesting.

We have 3 children who are mostly grown and away doing their own thing, but come home occasionally.

Hi there,

We are a young family of 3 (4 including our little dog Mildred) living on our family dairy farm in stunning Western Southland, New Zealand. Within an easy drive of the southern lakes, Te Anau, the rugged South Coast, Fiordland, the Clifden Caves, and all the adventures the region has to offer!

We are looking for up to two people to help out for 4 hours a day around the house, with things like gardening, painting (interior and exterior), stacking firewood, moving branches etc. In exchange we will provide food and board.

We look forward to meeting you!

Berry farm just out of Te Anau township, growing raspberries, blackberies, boysenberies and tayberries. I need help picking berries during the summer, especially in February when the local kids go back to school.
Help required from now until late February. For work in Nov & Dec you need to be able to work independently s I am only home for half the week. Jobs to be done are weeding and tidying in the berries, and also the home garden. Picking starts about Christmas. We have lots of berries to pick this season.
Stay a few days & walk some of our great tracks. If the house is full we have a large tent and mattresses.

This is a stud beef cattle property situated near picturesque Winton in Central Southland. The area is renowned for its farming and Torrisdale (the farm) is surrounded by dairy and mixed farming properties. The property is within short travel distances of some of the most talked about 'tourist' locations including Queenstown which is only a 100 minute drive away.
Like on all farms there are things to do. Preparing for/and maintenance of shelter tree plantings, small building and maintenance projects and some gardening are just some of the outdoors jobs that helpers could be involved with plus for those who have some experience, mingling with the cattle is occasionally on the list.
Food and accommodation (own room, shared bathroom) provided. Capped Internet access available. Helpers who are proficient in cooking (for themselves mostly) and putting their hand to the occasional bit of housework would fit well in the routine that is usually in vogue here.

We have a lifestyle block 8km from Te Anau with a large garden.
We grow an extensive range of fruit and vegetables, and process these in various ways.We have bees and our plantings are bee and bird friendly. We also have two very friendly cats (which sadly are not bird friendly). We would love some help with the gardens and household tasks, whatever needs to be done on the day. Some of the work is heavy for instance pruning and mulching.
We would like to host people who are practical and quick learners, prepared to help out steadily for 4 hours a day, are not smokers, and eat a variety of food including meat. Your own transport is also necessary as we live out of town.
In return you will have a comfortable bedroom in our house (the bathroom is shared) and meals. If you want to work a full day then have a day off to explore our beautiful area, that is fine with us. We are right on the edge of Fiordland National Park!
