Need help now and Experience life on our small family dairy farm with caring owners in New Zealand



 Min stay requested: No minimum



  • Description


    We may need someone to stay late may -june for about 3 weeks, with our teenager (16yrs). You might need to have your own transport, be capable to light a log burner at night, feed chickens and prepare meals, do some cleaning and generally be responsible. Our son will be going to school each day.

    we have a small dairy farm 3km from Collingwood. We have one teenager at home now. We are generally gluten free but can offer gluten toast/ oats. Please bring your own snacks, chocolate or sweets. We offer three good meals per day and expect some work with various things. We are on the road to Farewell Spit at the top of the south island. Here we are surrounded by beautiful bush, big rivers and a great coast line, all 3km from the village and 20mins to Takaka.
