About the workproject

We need 1 volunteer

We own a dairy farm milking 360 cows in the middle of the north island of New Zealand. We have a separate 'sleep out' accommodation, and are looking for someone preferably sporty and active to help us manage our four children (aged 7-12) some housework/driving, general help in our busy lives.

Host since




I have limited French, but our permanent farm staff are French, so we are embracing all things French (including trying to improve our understanding of the language)!

We are a NZ dairy farmer and Irish wife, living in NZ for the last 13 years. We have four children and live a busy life, kids are busy doing sports and activities during the week. We work on the farm as well as having other interests. We love hosting international visitors and showing them our farm and our home.
