We'd like some help on our 3 hectare lifestyle block with some building projects, general maintanance, gardening, cooking and occasional childcare. We have one big labrador, a pet goat, sheep and cows so there's always something to do. Mum works as a relieve early childhood teacher and dad is a agricultural worker. Having travelled a lot ourselves we know what it means to be away from home.

Travellers will experience a true New Zealand lifestyle and might be able to gain new practical skills such as using tool, cutting firewood or planting trees.
We'd like someone who can work independently with their own initiative. You will help with the everyday running of a household and a large property,
We can offer seperate accomodation a few metres from the main house. It's a double story swiss style building with a bedroom, bathroom and a beautiful balcony around the back.
Gladstone/Longbush is a vibrant country community where people can experience the true Kiwi way of life. Although there is lots to do like the Martinborough fair, stonhenge concerts, tramping in the Tararua rangers and lots more, it would be handy to have your own transport.
