We live on a high country sheep & beef farm in Central Otago in a little rural area called Tarras. Our family all farm here and we have two additional workers who help us out on the farm. We have pet dogs, cat, and hens
as well as the farm animals.

Tarras is located a short drive from local towns Cromwell (20 mins) or Wanaka (30 mins) and Queenstown (1hr). It is a great spot to stop over if you are travelling between Christchurch/Mount Cook and Queenstown/Wanaka/ Fiordland.

We are looking for people who are interested in helping us out with jobs at our farm homestead. Work will vary depending on what needs done at the time and your skills. Examples are gardening, building, painting, maintenance jobs, cooking or cleaning.

You can explore the farm in your free time where you can bike, hike or swim in the river. Hours can be flexible to allow you to explore the surrounding areas as there is lots to see and do if you have a car. To get the most out of your stay we recommend you have your own transport so you can get out and about and explore the region.

In return for 3-4 hours work we can offer you simple rustic self contained accommodation in a shepherds cottage with cooking facilities. We offer farm fresh eggs, meat & seasonal produce for you to cook your meals.

If you are interested please get in touch and we can provide more information.

Note: You would need your own transport to get to Tarras. The closest supermarket/shop is 30 minutes drive away so please bring any special foods or snacks you may like. We do have mobile reception and there is internet access at the homestead.
