  • Description

    Description

    we have a small dairy farm 3km from Collingwood. We have three children, 14 12 11 yrs. they are busy and active. We have coeliac children but offer you gluten breakfast / toast/ oats. Please bring your own and any other snacks, chocolate or sweets. We offer three good meals per day and expect 4.5 hours of work. We like for you to help with the meal dishes and like you to explore our local area. 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.

    We have bikes for you to use and kayaks and are happy for you to go out in the evenings.

    You can get to Takaka by coach, and we can pick you up from there. If you don't have a car you can hitchhike easily to Farewell Spit from our farm, which is on the same road.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We always spend time talking to our travellers and encourage them to walk around the farm, see the milking and interact wtih our children. We offer local information and most people leave knowing alot about a typical kiwi farming family.

    Help

    We are looking for help with weeding and housework. You will be part of the family environment and just help where it needs. This is a busy time but we are relaxed, inclusive and want you to have fun and time off too. You will need to be flexible, kind, tolerant and wanting a full kiwi experience in all aspects of a busy working house and farm.

    If you are a couple one of you help me with gardening calves and help from partner/friend in house with laundry tidy up and cleaning. then the day is yours.
