  • Description


    We are a NZ couple aged 49 and 52. Cathy is a food technologist who works from home via her internet based businesses. Barry is an ex army chef and general maintenance guy who spends his days working on our property as well as making wooden crafts to sell at local markets on weekends.

    We need help with outside work around our small farmlet (1 hectare). We live right next to a country 9 hole golf course so if you are a golfer you can play as often as you like. Our house is off the electricity grid so we rely on solar, wind and a generator. However we have reliable WiFi and mobile coverage.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We can take you to local craft markets in Thames and Pokeno where Barry sells his wooden art craft pieces. He also has farmer friends in the area so can visit other locals and have a chat and take part in other farming activities. The golf course has a bar so another chance to socialise.

    We live in an area with no neighbours in sight so if you just want to chill out when not working you can relax in your own company.

    You'll spend most of your work time with Barry - he is very extroverted and friendly so you'll have a chance to talks lots too if that's preferred.
