We live in scenic north canterbury on a large dairy farm beside the Hurunui River. We are one hours drive north of Christchurch city, very easy to locate and forty minutes from Hanmer a popular tourist area. We have hosted many different tourists and regularly host French university students for three months for their internship and have always enjoyed meeting and learning from others. We have six permanent staff on our dairy farm, four Filipino families and two kiwis with both female and male employees. We have a great friendly enjoyable team working environment and encourage lots of social activities to experience as much as possible during your stay. We have five young adult children all working away from home around New Zealand and a friendly young dog Max, who is our replacement child!.
