  • Description


    We are a family of 5, Mum, Dad and 3 children ages; 6,5 & 2. We are a dairy farming family located in Central Taranaki milking 360 cows. Our older 2 children attend primary school Monday - Friday, whilst our youngest is at home with Mum and Dad. Over our busy calving period (July-October/November) we need an extra pair of hands living with us to help look after our children and run our household.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have both traveled and lived overseas prior to having children and really enjoy travelling with our children as much as possible now. We are a typical kiwi family with broad interests and experiences in living in both town and country!
    We are a hands on working dairy farm in which host visitors will be able to learn about the day to day operations & overall how a dairy farm operates. Host visitors will also be engaging with our children & therefore experience what kiwi kids enjoy & how we live our lives.
    We hope to learn about our host visitors native culture & family backgrounds.

  • Help


    We require someone who has the ability to see what needs doing around the home by using their initiative and who enjoys being around children and family. As both Mum and Dad work on the farm full time there is plenty of things that we need help with at home, including; childcare, laundry, light cooking, housework, outside maintenance. There is also scope for a willing person to help out with some farm jobs, for example feeding calves, milking cows.
