We need someone who LOVES cooking and would enjoy making the evening meal for us (definitely not vegetarian please!)

We are a Christian homeschooling family, with just one 14yo girl left at home during the term, but extras in the holidays. We run a shop in the small town of Twizel in the beautiful Mackenzie Country.

Life is very full with running the household, and business, plus we are quite involved in our community. We have quite a lot of visitors.

We have room for 1 or 2 Helpxers. You will have your own room in the house. We have broadband internet & WiFi.

We have an adorable labrador dog, one old chicken, one giant rabbit & a budgie.

As well as cooking, we expect light household duties to help us run the home and keep it tidy (something we really struggle with - we need more time!) and clean. Also possibly gardening and yardwork. In the evenings, you will have plenty of opportunities to practise English! And we love European boardgames.

This is an amazing area... more inside

WE ARE CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR A LONG TERM HELPER OR HELPERS. WE ARE SET UP WITH POWER FOR CAMPER VANS OR BUSES IF NECESSARY. May suit a travelling family or a mature person or persons.
This quaint little farm is a family home to me (Barbara), my adult daughter (Tamzin) and my granddaughter. My elderly Mum and my stepdad have recently built a wee unit at the end of the farm so I can help take care of her. Our extended family is often visiting too.
We expect our helpers to be a part of our family whilst they are here.
We enjoy the interaction and conversation. If you are open minded, friendly and chatty you will fit in well. This is definitely not the place to be socially awkward!
I prefer people to stay for a minimum of one week, and longer if everyone is getting on well. If you want somewhere long term and we all get on well then just have a talk with me about it.

The farm is approximately 4ha/ 10 acres, close to southern alps where some of the lord of the rings movie was f... more inside
