Looking for someone who is keen to work with animals or in the garden and not afraid to get their hands dirty!!

My husband (33) and I (31) own a dairy farm running 251 cows on the west coast of the South Island. We are situated right on the bush line and get a gorgeous view of the southern alps. Spring time - when the calves arrive (August - October), is our busiest time of the year. We rear all of the calves and milk the cows once a day in the morning times. We've also recently become a family of 3, our daughter is 2.5 yrs old and were pregnant with our 2nd. We'd love to host someone that is either interested in the farming side of things, rearing calves, fencing, spraying weeds, feeding out (general farm tasks) OR minding our daughter, taking her for walks or just entertaining her, along with jobs around the house, windows etc, possibly some cooking if you like cooking! Im also a keen vege gardner - which always needs some TLC.
It would be great if helpers could work at le... more inside

Do you love the outdoors?
We are a small family in Fox Glacier.
We are looking for person or persons to give us a hand with general farm duties. This is a sheep and beef farm so there is always something needing to be done.
Accommodation is a queen room in our family home with all meals, laundry service and unlimited Wi-fi provided in return we ask for a minimum 4 hour day helping us with our day to day farm duties.
We have a son Peter who is 18 and mainly away being educated other than during the holidays, so you will not get babysitting duty. We do have a house cat "Special" and a house dog "MaGoogin" and two working dogs Sam and Spot. We have naughty chickens also.No vegetarians please!
So if this sounds like you drop us an email or a txt and when we are in coverage we will get back to you ASAP.

I live on a 40 hectare property between Greymouth and Hokitika (most of which is native forest) with a view over the Taramakau river. The land and house need ongoing maintenance including gardening, gathering firewood, window cleaning, painting, and clearing tracks.
I also have some sheep, and occasionally need help with managing them.
My preference is someone (or couple)who has been raised in the countryside, is strong, and capable with machinery. An international drivers licence would be a bonus. I like people who work hard, and are capable of doing so without supervision. At the moment I am setting up a new outside enclosure for my hens and clearing firewood from a track through our forest and working around my garden area and tunnelhouse...
I may need help with some cooking from time to time. My children are grown up, and not living at home...

In return for 4 hours work for every night you stay, I look after you well. The food is tasty wholesome farm cooking. Vegetaria... more inside

We are located 40 minutes south of Hokitika and 1.5 hours north of Franz Josef, on a very small dairy farm. There are just under 100 cows. We will have calves shortly.

Katharine would love to design and project manage building another house and once had thoughts of drafting/architecture as a career. Design, ceramics, travel and food are some of my interests. I think I should learn a little Yoga and exercise more.
John, farming, current affairs, poultry, birds We are both like reading. But completely different subjects.
We have an 2 dogs, four cats and lots of poultry.
If you are a potter, there is a small pottery (domestic stoneware ceramics) room and kiln.
Our accommodation is a cosy and private with one double bed and shared facilities.
We are looking for some help in the garden , building, handyman jobs or anything that comes up. Nothing too difficult.

Just a peaceful place that needs some t.l.c. every once and a while, like gardening, creating and cleaning, depending on the weather. Were a couple, with a 22 year old, and we love to hear about what's happening in the world, from different perspectives.. Were not traveling at present, so this is the next best thing.... having someone in our home, helping, sharing and learning. . ..
I love dancing, music, and arts which is included in our home environment. Riding motor bikes, or a little game of table tennis, creating trails, riding on the bicycle trails, hiking, & watching sun sets. Never boring around here for me, I am in the process of becoming more self sufficient, planted 20 trees. Creating new gardens, wanting to create a medicinal garden this year.
The more alive our food is the better, for all of us ~_0
If you would like to help me learn about life, I would like to hear from you.
My husband is a local, born and bread, along with his father, and grandfather, and gr... more inside
