I have only recently moved back to the Farm. I grew up on this farm but has been away for a number of years and things need doing to get it back how I like it.

I spend some time off farm but are flexible about work hours and/or pay. Work will be varied depending on skills but could include gardening, housework, maintenance around the farm, working with sheep or beef cattle or driving tractors. Crops raised include Wheat, Peas, Ryegrass Seed & Vegetable Seed crops.The farm also runs some Sheep & Cattle. Our helpers almost always leave with new skills which often include operating Quad Bikes and Tractors. At certain times of the year I can find paid work for you.

I am easy going & well travelled, I like to enjoy life.I'm also a Couch Surfer host and like to meet people from elsewhere in the world. Interests include Mountain Biking, Fishing, Gardening, Self Sufficiency, Music, Travel, Camping & Hiking.

The farm is close to Ashburton (8km) which has all services. Rivers, Rec... more inside

We are a Christian homeschooling family, who run a shop in the small town of Twizel in the beautiful Mackenzie Country.

Life is very full with running the household, land and business, plus we are quite involved in our community. We have a lot of visitors, coming
and going, as well as the family - we have more at home in school holidays than during the school term.

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, two chickens & a budgie. We have a small vege garden and enjoy many herbs and flowers in pots and baskets :-)

We need someone who loves cooking and would enjoy making the evening meal for us (and definitely not a vegetarian please!) and can do light household duties to help us run the home and keep it tidy (something we really struggle with currently - we need more time!) and clean. Plenty of opportunities to practise English! And we love European boardgames.
