  • Description



    We are a busy family of 4 - Myself, my husband Mark, Harry (4 years) and Alice (2 years). We live 5 minutes from Ashburton on a small farming block where we have calves, pigs, hens and our friendly dog Bella.

    Mark works on my family farm full time 10mins down the road and is very busy with harvest over the summer, and I am kept busy with the two young active kids!
    Also from August - Decemeber we are very busy rearing calves on our property.

    We would love for someone to join our family and experience the kiwi lifestyle whether its for 1 week or longer, we are totally flexible!

    We have a big country garden which i would love help with - there is always plenty of weeding and pruning to be done. Also if you love cooking/baking thats a bonus!

    The kids love being outside playing and exploring, and they just love having some new to show around and be part of our family during their stay :)
