Tides Getting Here Clutha Attractions


Telford Farms require a General Farm Worker for a period of 12 weeks. There is also a possibility of further casual work.

Telford Farms is situated near Balclutha on 800 hectares of rolling and flat country. Currently we run 600 cows, 600 R1s and 2100 ewes.  There is an educational component to our farming operations, and you will be working alongside students.  We are looking for a General Farm Worker to assist during the busy period from July-September.  No two days will be the same and you will need to be a jack of all trades. We are happy to provide training and upskilling, but you will need to have had previous experience in most of the areas.  The position would suit somebody with more than 3 years experience in the Agricultural Industry.  This could possibly suit a farmer who is semi retired.


The skills required:

  • Previous calving and/or lambing experience
  • Break feeding/pasture management experience
  • General fencing maintenance and water reticulation skills
  • Tractor driving/feeding supplements
  • Ability to use initiative and work unsupervised as some self autonomy is required
  • One trained heading dog would be allowed
  • Current full drivers’ licence
  • Team player


Please email your CV and Cover Letter (including two referees) to  Applications close 16 July 2021.  An immediate start is preferable but can be negotiated.
