We live in a rural setting 2kms from central Motueka township. We are a busy working couple with two adult sons one about to locate next door with his wife and our beautiful grandchildren who visit regularly and our older son lives in Perth Australia. The property consists of muddled cottage gardens, a home vege patch and a large vegetable garden out the back, a 1/4 acre mixture of fruit trees which will expand to a full acre by the end of 2013. Husband is a hunter gatherer who enjoys the great outdoors and always makes sure the freezer is stocked with wild game and we have at least two years of firewood ahead of us every year. We have 40 free range chickens and sell eggs at the gate. Pigeons fly free during the day at the rear of property we also have a 2 playful dogs Missy and Eddie and a cat named sooty. We would need a maximum of 5 hours work per day with the following: Animal feeding,cleaning out houses,collecting eggs, firewood management, weeding, planting, prunning and ground preparation. General housework and cleaning in exchange for food, good company, a cultural experience and accommodation. If you have some special skills ie: building,interior and exterior design, landscaping, painting, wallpapering, painting and plastering skill you are exactly what we need right now especially as we are moving another house onto the property and will need help with the renovations of this. If you can help please apply.
