Typical NZ family farm with a variety of animals, hosted by a bubbly Kiwi/German couple in a rural setting. Many options to explore the area: hidden walkways or a short trip to the big city Christchurch. We are a red deer farm, a family operation with additional beef cattle, sheep and horses. We are located near the Mt. Hutt ski field and the Rakaia George nearby which offers many scenic walkways and Mountain bike tracks. Tasks involve work around the house, our veggie garden and the farm.
You will be able to experience the best of both worlds. Farming and South Islands' biggest city close by. New Zealand is one of only a few countries that farms red deer. You will be able to see these majestic animals from your bedroom window. 3 working dogs are part of the family too and if you are keen to learn about farming and how to drive a tractor-its all here.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We are looking forward to meeting people with a positive attitude with a love for the outdoors. We are seeking help with moving break fences, picking rocks and gardening. If you are interested in horses there might be the option to be involved in looking after them as well.
