HELP WITH 2 LOVELY CHILDREN PLEASE, AGES 7 AND 9 IN JUNE 2017

Kiaora. We are a family of 4, and we live on 5 acres in Matakana, which is one hour from Auckland on the stunning matakana coast. Our children are Charlie (girl) 9, and Barnaby is 7. We have 2 cats and an amazing dog. We also have 2 lovely goats, 11 sheep and 7 peking ducks. We are looking to travel without our children for a week in June this year for my sister's 40th birthday, and would love 2 girls to come and look after our children for a week in June 2017. The children catch the bus right from the farm gate to and from school. Our farm is only 8 minutes to the picturesque Matakana Village.

You would have to help get the kids ready for school for about an hour in the morning, and then meet them off the bus and get their afternoon tea and dinner in the evening. During the day you can do what you like, there is a lot to do in the area, which is very popular with tourists. The beaches are incredible, even in June!... more inside

Hi! We are a family of five (mum a photographer from Sweden, dad a builder from New Zealand and three kids 9, 13 & 14) living on a 12 acre lifestyle block in Matakana. We are not 100% organic but try to be as much as possible, we do spray gorse thou. We run a small flock of sheep, have three goats, chickens, ducks, bees and a horse (Spero, a re-homed TB who needs a lot of TLC). We also have two dogs (Ya-Ya & Yoda) a cat (Ewoki) and a rabbit (Pebbles). We need help with landscaping around the pool area and plant trees round our fence line. Our veggie garden is due for a re-wamp (read weed has taken over!) and plans to plant a berry garden and more fruit trees is on the agenda. So there is quite a lot to do over here and fairly labour intense so we need people who's not afraid of working hard. We like to eat fairly healthy and bake our own bread and brew kombucha every week. Ig you can help with cooking some days it would be great too. On our down time we swim in the pool and warm our... more inside

We run a 140ha beef breeding and finishing farm 1 hour north of Auckland and within 15 minutes drive of the stunning east coast beaches of Pakiri, Te Arai and Mangawhai. Lake Tomarata, a freshwater lake suitable for swimming in summer is also just a few minutes drive away.

We have not had many helpers this year as we have instead employed someone to work part time on the farm and have not needed the extra help. However we do miss the exchange with those from other countries so if you have a farm background and good practical maintenance skills then feel free to contact us.

If you would like to stay as a helper on the farm you must have strong practical skills as these are very important. Usually you will be working with us because many hands do make light work but there are times when you will have separate things to do. You will need to be motivated to complete the assigned tasks as we do not feel we should have to supervise you.

We would be especially delighted if you ... more inside
