Ideally, we seek someone with farming exp that is interested in tractor and general maintenance activities including fencing welding & stock work on the support farm. We are most interested in someone with mechanical or general engineering background that can maintain & fix stuff properly.

If your partner was prepared to rear calves, then that would be a serious advantage to us. Again, we can train this.

Hours and time off designed to give you a life outside the farm. You or your partner must be prepared to do some morning milking to support our roster of sleep ins for all staff and we can train you if needed.

You must be fit and able to work independently where required. The willingness to develop and train young people is important, and you must have a valid full driver license and own vehicle. Must be capable of safely operating tractor and motorbikes.

We make time to teach skills through 1 on 1 training targeted to people’s needs. In return we expect common sense & effective communication that get jobs done on time.

The right person will contribute maturity experience and a friendly positive can-do attitude to the team. Leadership Respect and Results are what we expect from everyone.

The property is located 10 minutes from Rakaia 30 minutes from Rolleston/Ashburton & has excellent facilities and equipment with a modern 60 bail Rotary Dairy. A lease block next door means we completely self-contained and can provide a complete farming experience.

There is a choice of a 2 or 3 bdrm home available on farm. You must be clean and tidy and look after the assets.
