    Description

    We are a dairy farming family of 4 kids and Mum and Dad. Three children at school during the day. Kate helps out on the farm and in the office, Brendon is running the farm with help from a herd manager and other workers. Twin Rivers is located on State Highway One, just over an hour from Dunedin, 30 minutes from Gore.

    Work on the farm varies depending on the season - calving happens Aug/Sept/Oct this is a really busy time of year but alot of fun too! - Milking season goes from August-May, winter quieter, but always farm jobs to do. If you enjoy getting outside there is general tidy work to do in the two gardens on the farm, Kate enjoys vegetable gardening but often lacks the time to get organised! We have a tunnel house as well. Past work awayers have helped with painting inside the house, gardening and also assisting milking the 700 cows. Our children are aged 11,9,8,and 4. If you're not into kids then our place is not for you. The children really enjoy finding out about new cultures and learning new things from you. Our oldest can speak german.

    We are a friendly busy family with a range of interests including rugby and netball in the winter. Having travelled the world ourselves we are interested in hosting people in our own home to experience kiwi life on a dairy farm.

    We are not too far from the Catlins Area - and also only 2 1/2 hours from Queenstown and Wanaka. We are situated on State Highway One half way between Gore and Balclutha near a small town callled Clinton. Catch a Bus has a depot in Clinton.
