Hello Helpers.

Spring is here and we have lots to do in Cheviot. Gary and Robert (gay couple) are looking for helpers now who can assist with all sorts of duties like washing the house, staining decks, gardening (weeding and line strimming, mowing lawns) collecting the produce from the garden and maybe some planting and watering.

We are also looking for people with general maintenance type jobs like painting and some domestic duties like cleaning. Plus we have sheep, lambs, cows and calves to feed and look after so quite a bit of variety.

Most of our outside jobs are weather dependent though so if the weather is OK we have lots to do. However, we do have some inside jobs for the cooler or wet days.

We are located in Cheviot, North Canterbury approx 1 hour and 20 minutes drive north of Christchurch or 50 minutes drive south of Kaikoura.

We are not organic but do grow our own vegies, fruit and herbs.

We have two Border Collie dogs called Isla and Frazer, a cat called Phoebe, our own sheep and four Jersey cows called Ruby, Chelsea, Molly and Poppy. Poppy calved 23 Sept and her wee calf is called Ivy. Molly calved Levi on 7 October and Chelsea calved Boston on 11 October so we are milking 3 cows and feeding five extra calves.

We can provide accommodation (your own room with double bed and shared ensuite) and 3 meals per day in return for 4 - 6 hours work each day.

We are looking for reliable, honest and friendly people (one person or a couple)

We are strictly non-smoking including inside the house and outside.
