    Descripción

    We live and work on a 330ha sheep and beef farm in Otago, New Zealand. We run around 2000 ewes and have 30 Limousin breeding cows. We have farm dogs, a couple of cats, chooks, pet lambs and a pony for the girls .... I think that is about it - a good selection of farm animals!

    We have 2 children aged 9 and 7.

    We often need help in the spring when we have some environmental and shelter planting projects underway.

    Also the summer is a busy time on the farm and around the garden with many other jobs that need to be done such as weed control and firewood etc.

    If you had experience with horses this would be good as my children have a pony that they are learning to ride!

    We are able to pick workawayers up from nearby destinations. However if you have your own vehicle this would be advantageous as we don't have any spare vehicles available for weekends off. But we are happy to provide transport where needed.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    We try to give workawayers a great NZ farm experience where they get to be involved in everyday farm life in exchange for helping us with a few odd jobs.

    Depending on the season - it could be helping on the farm spraying weeds, splitting firewood, fencing or planting natives in wetland or shelterbelt areas. We have a large garden and so there can be a lot of work there with mowing lawns and weeding etc.

    We are about 2 hours away from Wanaka/ Queenstown and Dunedin. Also just over 2 hours to Te Anau which is where there are many walks and the Fiordland National Park. Only just over the hill (1 hour) is Central Otago which is famous for wine growing and summerfruit growing. We are also only 1 hour from the Catlins.
