Welcome to beautiful New Zealand!!!

We are looking for someone now or/and between late November and January (would consider someone for longer than two weeks if desired) as I am travelling back to Germany and my husband would love someone to help around the house as that time is a very busy 'farming' season!

We are a German-Kiwi Farming Couple who live with their 4 months old daughter in one of the most beautiful places of the North Island. We are currently looking for 1 person who would like to help for four hours a day. The main jobs we need help with at the moment are gardening, cleaning and other odd jobs. Initially, we invite you to stay a couple of days and if we all get on well you are welcome to stay until we have no more work up to a maximum of two weeks.

In return we offer a spacious, warm room in our house, food (we do really appreciate help/ turns with cooking and /or washing up), internet, use of everything in the house, lot's of animal time and knowledge and experiences about farming (if interested). We understand that a lot of woofers would love to spend as much time on the farm as possible but please realize that all of our farm work is skilled and based on years of experience and therefore there are very little jobs woofers can do. We do, however try very hard to provide as many farm experiences as possible but please appreciate that they will be mostly in your 'leisure time' and not counted as part of 'working time'. We share our beautiful home with 9 working dogs, 2 horses and 1 cat as well as 250 Bulls, 120 Cows and 1600 sheep. We are happy for very experienced horse riders to ride our horses in their ‘leisure time’, we do have high standards as our horses are young, so please don’t be disappointed if your skills aren’t good enough. 

Please don't send us cv's, we just want a few lines about yourself, your age, where you are from, what brings you to New Zealand and how much time you have here or something else about yourself. Our farm is nestled at the bottom of the stunning Ruahine Ranges and there is great walking right from our front door. (Between Palmerston North and Napier). We got an amazing view from our house. If you are a friendly, non-smoking, hard working and helpful individual we would love to meet you and share our little paradise.
