  • Description


    Location near town called Woodville

    Dairy Farm
    ......Now looking for a fun, energised and animal loving female who is good with kids (boys 3yr and 5yr old)
    Must like to live on a beautiful farm near the river -
    Also if you like riding horses and experienced this is a bonus as I have two . We could go for rides together.

    Every second or weekend off, if you would like to travel away for weekend. My husband works full time off farm but farms in the weekends.

    Mainly helping out with kids and hanging out with me and having some fun while looking after the kids to give me some time to work my horses or get some jobs done on farm.
    Also just general helping keeping house and garden clean and tidy.

    We have a swimming pool too.

    Lots of places to go for a walk

    Sean and Natalie Married, aged 37 and 41yrs old with a toddler 3yrs named Fergus and boy named Will 5yr who has started school.

    We would love to go out for dinner at some point and have some time alone so someone who is capable of putting kids to bed etc .
    We have wifi, Netflix, neon and sky tv .
    Very relaxed - if you wanted to take time away and explore a bit on weekends that would suit as well.

    We love animals !
    Love our cows, calves , dogs and horses.
    I hunt on my horses April-July.
    Our dogs are called Drum (Labrador) and Gin (red heeler)
    Farm house with own privacy sleep out near pool and king bed.
    Wifi available
    We are non smokers - smokers please do not apply

    We are generally active and healthy - don’t cook vegan nor vegetarian .
    I (Natalie) juggle overseeing farm and kids and can be difficult especially during calving as kids get sick of being dragged out twice a day to feed calves (mid july-October) so to have help to watch kids at home would be great during this time especially.

    The boys love outdoor play and occupy themselves pretty well.
