  • Description


    We live on a High country station (farm) with some sheep and beef. Guided hunting operation and general farm work. A couple of horses.
    We are ready for our next helpers for The start of October onwards.
    We are very interested in having a person that stays for longer (2-3months) as a AuPair type person.
    James and myself are in our early thirties with two children aged 1 year and 2 years.
    You will be welcome in our home for meals and socialising. You can sleep in the log cabin away from the house for peace and quiet away from the Children! We are looking for people that are willing to slot into family life. If you are only interested in farm work then your stay is limited to 1-2 weeks. Limited wifi and no cell phone reception unless you walk up a small hill. This is a really remote location, gravel road to get here. We could pick you up from in Kaikoura town if you have no vehicle.
    Located 40 minutes from Kaikoura.

    We are looking for helpers to do jobs like: mowing lawns, gardening, fire wood, wood splitting,
    helping with the children, some housework, general farm jobs. Roughly 4 to 6 hours a day. Work is varied

    This really is a magic location and we are looking forward to sharing it with you.
