    Descripción

    Experience the warm hospitable kiwi culture whilst staying with our family on our 30 acre organic farm 50 minutes north west of Christchurch.
    We are a family of 4 ( two children Aged 10 yr and 8yr) Our parents who are in the 70’s also live in a wee cottage on the farm.
    We strive to grow, nourish and spread the passion of organics. We sometimes need a little help with things around the farm and household and would like to share our patch of paradise with a suitable person who would like to spend time in NZ with a kiwi family. We farm a flock of organic Wiltshire sheep and farm using organic, Biodynamic and holistic grazing methods. Our daughter loves horses and we have a Shetland pony who loves daily attention. We love to get out with our pony and enjoy working alongside friends who have horses.

    My husband also works on a high country station and we spend a lot of time up there too so there is opportunity to experience another aspect to kiwi life.

    Daily help would include gardening, general household chores such a baking, cleaning, spending time with the children (they love new and interesting people who can help them with the things they love to do!) We are part of a large culturally diverse family (kiwi, Guatemalan, Brazilian, Irish and Taiwanese!) so we love to meet new and interesting people.

    We love spending time outdoors in the garden and on the farm. We are passionate about organic agriculture and love to cook good food, chat and spend time with like minded people.

    In our spare time away from the farm we love to walk, trail run, mountain bike and enjoy our beautiful country. We have a Hungarian Viszla dog that just loves to come along for these adventures!

    You would be expected to help 4-5 hours per day and would do daily work such as gardening, house hold chores such as food preparation and cleaning. Other farm activities that may come up depending on the season are lamb feeding, helping to move sheep herbal drenching and dagging. During the summer months there will be additional work in the orchard when fruit needs to be picked and processed. Sometimes there is a need to help out with the children, for example, taking them to a lesson or helping with the pony if needed. Much of our work does not necessarily need someone who is experienced but we do need volunteers who are willing to get physical and get their hands dirty!

    You will have your own bedroom and bathroom in our family home to stay in while you are volunteering with us. We will provide all meals that we prepare at home. Additional food such as during times when you might come to a function such as a summer fair, need to be purchased by the individual. Daily meals are shared with the family and help preparing and cleaning up after meals is something we encourage
    You have access to the phone/ internet in the main house and are welcome to sit down and enjoy an occasional family movie night.
