Our farm is 100 acres of deer-fenced land on the fabulous Otago Peninsula - the Wildlife Capital of NZ. The help we require is some basic garden maintenance, wood splitting, weed-eating etc. We are an animal besotted family with 3 horses, 3 cats, lots of ducks and a dog (please NOTE we have retired drugs dogs so if you use even occasionally, then please don't bother offering your services !)
Some equestrian knowledge would be helpful as you will take care of the daily horse routine but not necessary. As we are a working farm, we aren't in a position to take pets sorry. Whilst we usually only take couples, we have had single helpers before too.
You need to be comfortable using your initiative as you will mostly be unsupervised and its useful to have your own boots. We provide you with all your meals of scrummy food and you'll have brand new accommodation with a queen bed and your own private bathroom. Non-smokers only thanks.
We start out with a week`s trial - this seems to suit our helpers - it`s just in case you don`t like us or vice versa!!

You can learn new skills such as using a chainsaw safely, driving a quad bikes and operating a log splitter. Because you will be needed to care for animals, it is an opportunity to gain confidence in taking responsibility for an animal menagerie. You will be close to animals and nature and can practice your English and we'll teach you the kiwi way.

We have several large stands of trees and we need to gather wood from the fallen ones. Also some light garden help such as weed whacking. Being able to use a chainsaw and drive a quad bike would help but if you can't then we are very happy to help you acquire new skills. As the help is mainly outdoor, sturdy boots would be good for you to bring. I'll supply you with wet weather and protective gear.

You have your own queen sized bedroom with it's own bathroom - part of the main house.
As we are not on a main road, any helpers really do need their own transport. Dunedin is known as the wildlife capital of NZ, we have a lot of interesting wildlife close by including the Northern Royal Albatross, blue penguins, Yellow-eyed penguins, Hooker Sealions to name but a few. NZ's castle, Larnach Castle is only a 5 minute drive away too.
If you love doing stuff you can have the use of mountain bikes and also as we are next to the sea, you can also have use of kayaks to explore the Otago Peninsula at your leisure.
