Pet sitting & House sitting job in Canterbury
Canterbury - Hurunui
This is a place that you can come and relax and enjoy the peace and quiet .
I have 19 Hectares in a very quiet location which is off the grid.
On the property I run 15 miniature hereford Cows who are currently producing lovely calves to Ferdinand, a lowline Angus bull, or a Miniature Hereford Bull called Houston. There are also 10 dairy heifers and 9 Damara sheep. (South African sheep, they look like goats but eat like sheep.) There are 4 groups of KuneKune pigs. Sows and piglets or weaners and boars.
I also have 5 brown shavers for eggs and 5 New Hampshire red hens for chicks in the spring. Plus three Pekin Ducks.
All my animals have water from dams or troughs and are in large paddocks (or pens for the poultry)
They are mostly self managing except for the odd electric fence issue and feed and water checking.
Poultry need feeding every day and so do the Pigs. (Grain)
There is plenty of room to park a Motor home there, There is a very comfortable 7.5 metre UK Caravan to stay in.. (Abbey Spectrum 540) Potable water available and handy. There is a high quality enclosed Worm composting toilet and the Caravan in on solar power and gas. for your use.
Eggs available from Poultry.
I am hoping some kind people can supervise my small block. Not much to do at all. So plenty of time to explore the Mt Grey area with lovely walks etc.
Sitters with previous farming experience a must.
Please contact me for further details.
Mature seasoned Christians are my preference.
