We are a family of 4 my husband (farmer) and me (teacher) and our 2 girls 8 & 10. We live on a sheep and beef farm on the East Coast. Looking for 1 or 2 people to help in the garden when it's fine and some inside painting if wet.
DIY and building projects
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
We live on a large sheep and beef farm, so if you want the opportunity to experience the workings of a real NZ farm. We have lots of pets you can hang out with (sheep, calves, pigs, horses and ponies). You can go on farm walks, ride a horse or just relax in the afternoons taking in the view. Visit one of the local beaches, borrowing a surfboard or fishing rod.
I am also a primary school teacher part-time at the local school so opportunities to attend school activities or even visit are possible.
Most help usually in and around the garden, planting, weeding, cutting back and general garden maintenance. If weather isn't great outside, then help in the house and a bit of painting.
Own bedroom in family house with a queen bed. Three meals a day in return for 4 hours work in the morning, help yourself to breakfast and lunch and then I am happy to cook dinner unless you wish to.
Own transport is a must, as we are 45minutes from the main city Gisborne and there is no public transport and this allows you to explore what the area has to offer. The beautiful beaches of the East Coast are only minutes away, take a swim, surf or fish. The famous Tolaga Bay wharf is also only a 5 minute drive where you can take a walk down or if feeling brave jump off. Also, there is the Cooks Cove walk, which takes in a mixture of farmland and native bush not to mention views of the coast and sea.
