  • Help


    Depending on time of year looking for help on my small dairy farm, plus sometimes help in garden and house. July- Nov helping with feeding calves, and what ever i'm up to on farm at time. I'm happy to teach people so no experience needed. Looking for people who have initative, and don't mind if they get wet and dirty sometimes . ( old clothes/ gumboots/ wet weather gear available to borrow. Must be happy around animals. Like people to stay for minimum 2 weeks.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Prefer people to have own transport, but not totally essential, Lots to see and do in area especially if you like walks. I'm good at drawing little maps to direct you. I have had helpers here for the last 3 years, I traveled overseas for 5 years when I was younger,so enjoy having travelers staying and making their NZ experience a great one and making them feel at home.
