We have small farm with beef cattle, dairy goats, pigs and veggie gardens, orchard and a lemon and lime grove.

We are working towards being as self-sufficient as possible so try to grow most of our own vegetables and all our meat is from our farm. We have a 17 year old daughter still living at home and a 22 year old son living in Christchurch. We are friendly and enjoy meeting people from all over the world.

We require 4 hours work per day for accommodation, all meals, WiFi, and laundry facilities. We have a spa pool with fantastic views over Lake Forsythe.

There are some lovely walking tracks around and we are close to the beginning of the Rail Trail - for biking - we have bikes available. We are about 15km away from pristine swimming beaches in the Southern Bays.

Paul is the local vet and knows the Peninsula well, he also brews his own beer. Heather makes jewelry, spins, weaves, makes cheese and loves cooking. We bake all our own bread.

We are looking for self motivated, energetic helpers who enjoy learning new things and are keen to share a bit of their culture with us.

Our current tasks are: weeding, brush cutting, painting the cattle yards, gorse spraying and general maintenance. If it is wet then we have inside cleaning tasks.
