  • Description


    Our game preserve and farm needs people who can multitask and undertake a varied role position on a busy 1000 hectare sheep and cattle property which runs a fishing & pheasant hunting lodge. If you have a passion for all things relating to farming, conservation and hospitality, then this is the right place for you. This is a challenging and most rewarding family run business in a beautiful rural setting. We have a lot of projects underway all year round and we would love to have the help and enthusiasm of like minded people; be it creating new nature trails, drenching sheep, working in the maple nursery, helping with our new conservation project which is in the heart of the Kiwiburn music and art festival area. This festival is New Zealand's regional Burning Man Event held late Janurary each year on the Farm. We are also looking for help building some Forest Cabins and eco toilets. General good fun and hard work. The opportunity for fine and wild times here is yours!
    find us on Facebook.
    Preferred minimum stay 2 weeks. Skill needed: Carpentry/Buildingand Computing if possible.
