we are fully booked until mid January :)

We are looking for some help as we are still busy with calf rearing and looking after our other animals and horses, including new foal. You will be helping around the farm, i.e. feeding the animals or helping in the garden and helping looking after the children.

We are a young and active Swiss-Kiwi family with three young children ranging from 2 year old to school age living on a lifestyle farm in the town of Oxford (45min away from Christchurch airport). We have all kind of animals (chicken, dogs, cats, rabbits, horses, calves, goats...) longing for attention as well as a garden and a big household appreciating support. Swiwi Farming & Equestrian is a small horse stud as well as a small farm raising calves and lambs.

The work for helpers will be depending on the time of year/preferences and include helping on the farm and in house and garden, looking after the animals and children plus helping with minor renovation and repair work. You get free accommodation in our modern guest room with toilet/shower across the hallway or in our soon to be set up cabin a few meters away from the house, as well as breakfast and dinner. There is free WiFi and washing available. There is a shop local in Oxford where you can get food for your lunch.

We have both traveled the world for years and know how nice it can be to stop for a while in one place and be part of a family. We enjoy meeting people from all over the world and showing them the area we live in as locals know it.

There is heaps of outdoor activities to be done in this area, from hiking to mountain biking, kayaking, fishing.... And the ski fields are pretty close too!
