We are 2km from Richmond shopping town, with sea, mountain and farmland views. 12 chickens, 50 sheep, 4 aviary birds, 2 ostrich and a friendly well trained dog. We work outside of the farm so there is always work to be done, the vegetable and flower gardens are quite large and forever need weeding. There are just the two of us and we are non smokers, meat eaters and love a beer and a laugh, willing to eat vegetarian if you cook it. In exchange for 4 hours work AND HELP with either preparing meals or washing up at meal times. You will be in our home, your room has a King size bed, you have free Internet access, and all meals. Not necessary to work each day, can have a day off and work 8hrs the following day. Prefer you to stay 7 days. As we are 50 & 60 we would like our helpers to be over the age of 25,thanks
NEED A BREAK from backpackers and wwoofing? If you are looking for accommodation that gives you time to
RELAX and NOT HAVE TO WORK, we have a one bedroom Large APARTMENT above our home, this normally rents out for $125 per night, HELPX MEMEBERS are welcome to rent the apartment out for a minimum of 5 days at $60 per night this is for 2 people, on the condition that you clean the apartment before your departure.
