Farm Au Pair

We have a specialised program for Au Pairs who would like to stay on a farm in New Zealand. We offer all the same support as our other programs , but take a different approach throughout the screening and application process to ensure we choose the correct farming family and that you as an au pair are suited to a New Zealand farming family.


As an Au Pair on a farm in New Zealand, you are presented with the ultimate New Zealand experience. there are a wide range of farms in New Zealand, with the major amount of farms being dairy or sheep and beef production.

A lot of farms also keep horses, mainly for recreational purposes although there are still many farms that do use horses for stock work. This often presents an opportunity for the Au Pair to ride and care for a horse in their free time.

You will often also have the chance to experience the farming life and be able to show the children areas of the farm such as where the young calves are housed.

It is a requirement of this program to hold a full drivers licence, as public transport will not be available, and to also be of a flexible and patient nature, as animals have a mind of their own and at certain times of year your host family may be home a short time after they were expected due to a sick cow for example.

We will also provide more information to the applicants of this program, particularly around the safety aspects of being responsible for both yourself and children on a working farm.
