We are situated overlooking the ocean on the stunning Otago Peninsula and have 100 acres of farmland. We require help with household/odd jobs as well as outside jobs, depending on what's happening.

We need helpers who are energetic, honest, fun, caring, conscientious, can get on with jobs without requiring supervision and are not glued to a device!!!

We are an animal besotted family with 3 horses, 8 ducks, 2 cats and a dog (please NOTE our dog is a retired drugs dog so if you use even occasionally, then please don`t bother offering your services !).

Some equestrian knowledge would be good but not necessary as you will be helping with the daily care of the horses.

We realistically only take couples as you can help each other out on jobs.

As we are not on a main road helpers MUST have their own transport. We have a lot of interesting wildlife and places to visit close by, but all do require a car to get there.

You need to be comfortable using your initiative as you will mostly be unsupervised and its useful to have your own boots/outdoor gear. As this is an exchange, we simply ask that you donate 5 hours of help per night stayed with one day off every week and in return we will provide you with scrummy food and brand new accommodation with a queen bed and your own private bathroom.
Please bear in mind that we will all share in the domestics particularly clearing up after meals and ask you keep your room clean and tidy!

Non-smokers only thanks.

Also as we are a very busy household with school children, we don`t have the time to separately cater for special dietary requirements ie vegetarians, gluten/lactose issues - SORRY!

We start out with a week`s trial - this seems to suit our helpers - it`s just in case you don`t like us or vice versa!!
