We are raising our two kids on a small eco-friendly farm on Banks Peninsula, 35 minutes from central Christchurch.

We offer a farmstay, with accommodation in a warm open-plan sleepout which has cooking facilities. We will provide you with food for your own breakfasts. You are welcome to join us for lunches and your evening meal. We would like helpers to work for four hours per night stayed helping us to regenerate native bush, farm chores and gardening.

At the moment we would love your help to plant native trees and help with firewood for next winter.

We aim to be as self-sufficient as we can. We grow and eat most of our food. Our heating and hotwater is a mix of solar and wood burners with wetbacks. We try to recycle our waste including having composting toilets.

We have great walking and biking at our back door accessing Banks Peninsula's highest peaks. Bikes are available for adults and children. We travel into Christchurch each week day and are happy to pick you up. Minimum stay required is four nights. No smokers please.
