We live half way between Lakes Wanaka and Hawea beside the Hawea River where we have a small farm mostly forestry with Highland Cattle and Dorper Sheep. We also have all the usual horses, dogs, cats, hens and the occasional pig. We have both traveled extensively and enjoy hearing about other peoples travels. We have a large warm house with all the expected mod cons including a pool,spa and internet. You would have your own bedroom and bathroom.The types of work we would like you to do is primarily outside, helping with our pest eradication program, clearing noxious vegetation, tree planting and gardening.If the weather is too cold then we can find work for you inside.We would provide all your meals and would expect help with the preparation. We are more than happy to hand over the kitchen duties if your talents lie in this direction! We are both fairly relaxed about hours and find that it usually averages out at about 4 hours a day and there is plenty to do in the region on days off. As we are outside of any town a car would be a necessity and we are non smoking.We look forward to hearing from you. We have been hosting for 6 years now and have enjoyed meeting people from Europe and Asia. Several helpex have visited us multiple times on their journeys around New Zealand and we have found these repeat visits a delightful and unexpected bonus.
