  • Description


    We are a dairy farming family in Mokoreta, Southland, New Zealand. Milking approx 1600 cows.

    We love having people in our house and think it's good for our children to learn about different cultures from a early age.

    Jobs are limitless - there is always something happening! Milking, hosing the yard, tractor work (must have prior experience!!), childcare, ponies to brush etc.

    We have four young children -plus 2 dogs, a cat, chickens, ponies.

    Accomodation is in a self contained caravan, with permanent double bed & two bunks.

    Prior to contacting us please google Mokoreta and locate it on the map so you know where we are :).

    Please only message us if you have experience with young kids, understand that they're busy/noisy/messy …

    So we know you have taken the time to read our whole profile when contacting us can you please tell us your favourite meal.
