  • Description


    Hi, we are Sara & Sam from Carterton, Wairarapa. We live on a farm but are only 5 mins drive from Carterton town & 10 mins from Masterton town or 1.5hours from Wellington city.
    We are a family of 5 with our 3 children aged 10 years old (William), 8 years old (Lucy) and 7 years old (Olivia). We are involved in a number of businesses so there is always something going on. We are sheep farming, and we have a stockfeed manufacturing business on our farm which we are both involved in, and we also have a mobile app business which the office is based in a house on the farm.
    We are looking for Workawayers to assist with some jobs around the house, garden & farm, and enjoy our family life. Preferably a couple or 2 friends travelling & keen on a week or so.
    We look forward to hearing from you.
    Check out our photos to meet our family.
