Our home located on a small working farm, approximately 5 minutes drive from Oamaru. We are a family of 2 adults and 3 dreadful teenagers. We fatten bulls on our farm, and have a small flock of sheep, plus chickens, ducks, pigs, alpaca, farm dogs and house cats.
Experiencing life on a New Zealand farm will be of interest to travellers, and being away from large cities and in a more rural environment.
We require a couple to help with winter pruning/maintenance of our garden for 2 to 3 days.
Travellers need to be able to work unsupervised, have a current WHV and your own transport. Non-smokers only.
We are offering accommodation, basic breakfast (cereal/toast) and dinner in exchange for 3 hours of work a day. You have to provide your own lunch and snacks.
The accommodation is in our home - bedroom has a king bed and tv. Shared bathroom facilities. Wifi is very limited sorry as its dodgy rural internet.
We also provide you with basic breakfast provisions (cereal & toast) plus dinner at night. You have to supply your own lunch and snacks.
We also run a Farmstay at our property, so we often have overseas guests and enjoy meeting people from other parts of the world. We are only looking for people for short stays, preferably 2 to 3 days during June or July.
We would love a couple who are quiet and respectful, and non-smokers essential. You will also need your own transport, especially if you want to sightsee around Oamaru. Our place is definitely not a party place. If you like a simple lifestyle, the countryside and animals, then our place will suit you.
