Thank you for stopping by ;)
We live in a beautiful farmhouse in Goughs Bay, 20-minute drive from Akaroa. We have a one year old girl who is a lot of fun. If you love animals you’ll love our place, dogs, chickens, ducks, friendly sheep and cows, surrounded by amazing natural beauty and quite, with hours of walks from our doorstep. We are literally at the End of the Earth!
We are looking for someone to help us with farm and gardening work. If you love home grown organic produce, and want to learn and experience a sustainable lifestyle during your stay in New Zealand than this is the right place for you.
Ideally, we would prefer someone with some experience in gardening and basic building. If you don't have any prior experience as such but willing to learn, get your hands dirty and share your creative ideas, then you are welcome as well.
You will get to enjoy New Zealand farm life and meet our sheep, pet lamp Kluane. Our famous pet dogs Bella and Ruby and farm dog Bobby ;) Of-course, you will also meet our chickens - Margaret, Brown girl, Mary, Rocky... The last but not the least you will get a chance to feed our ducks - Lucky and Ducky and their flock.
