General Farm Hand

  • Papanui Estate - Turakina Valley

Papanui & Ferndale Station are family owned, large scale hill properties located in the stunning Turakina Valley. The stations are run as traditional sheep breeding operations with a combined land area of 4880ha, running 24,000 MA breeding ewes and 1400 trade steers.

Having recently expanded their farming operation to include Ferndale Station, the owner now requires a General Farm Hand to join their team and work across both properties. The role will offer you true Station life where no two days are the same. There will be flexibility with the setting of tasks as these will be determined on the appointee’s skills; the owner will fit the role to suit the strengths of their preferred candidate.

There is a variety of work available from digger and bulldozer operating through to fencing, welding, carpentry and some stock work. The appointee will have a practical mind, a can-do attitude and will enjoy problem solving. The ability to work well in a team and good time management skills are also essential to your success in this role.

There is an outstanding local community and Papanui Junction Primary School is a few minutes up the road, with a bus at the gate. Accommodation is a recently renovated 3 bedroom cottage with an established garden.

Applications will be reviewed as they are received.
