Hi,

If you interested in being part of a busy farming family with two young children, lots of animals and varying jobs you may be interested in what we are looking for .

We are busy with farm life and DIY jobs and we require help for day to day life around the house, garden and farm.

You must have a good attitude, be happy to be around children. Most jobs we need help with will not need prior experience but please tell us what you enjoy and have experience in.

We do not require you to work on the farm with stock although you will get plenty of opportunity to experience farm life. Animals are everywhere and a big part of our life.

About us:

We are a family of four, a two year old and a 9 month baby. We live in an amazing part of the country, plenty to see and do in the Catlin's area, walking, wildlife and the sea on our doorstep.

We involve you in our life as much as possible and we have many memorable times with helpers in the past.
You are not expected to look after our children although if we had the right helper some child minding opportunities may be discussed.

You MUST have your own vehicle as we want you to get out and about and make the most of the amazing place we live in.

We are located in the Catlin's a 20 minutes drive from Owaka, 25 minutes drive from Balclutha, with fishing, tramping, surfing all very close. Although not to far from civilisation we live in a remote area. We do not have cellphone reception at house (10 mins down the road we do).

When you message us please confirm you have your own vehicle and tell us your background and what you have experience in.

Please note that helpers in the past had their own accommodation ( talked about in reviews) this is now unavailable you will be have your own bedroom but be sharing the house with us.

We grow our own meat and organic vegetables

Thankyou,

Todd & Sophie
