Hi Everyone

We need a helper or two over the next week or two to help with lawn mowing in the orchard, tidying up the flower and vege gardens and also some housework as we are preparing for our baby to arrive in March.

We are also looking for helpers for the feijoa season which will be from early Apr to late Jun (frost depending). You will need to speak good english so we can train you, and you need to enjoy being outside in the sun picking fruit. We like to have lots of fun out there with music etc. We need people who can stay for 10-14 days at a time so you get really good at picking the fruit!

As well as the feijoa orchard we have a large home orchard and vege gardens, chickens for eggs and some cattle.

Visitors must be good with dogs as our dog Posh is a large inside friendly dog and she is a big part of our family.

We have Wi-fi available, a river to swim in, spa pool and plenty of open space for you to enjoy in your free time and of course we are quite close to all the Marlborough wineries if you fancy tasting some wine.

Non Smokers only!

We are situated less than 10 mins drive from Renwick so we can pick you up from there or Blenheim (20 mins away) if you don't have transport.

We often have visitors staying so accommodation will be in our comfy cabin. We will provide 3 meals a day and snacks, good accommodation and a friendly atmosphere in return for 4-5 hours work a day. Food is mainly seasonal vegetables, home kill meat and plenty of fruit from the orchard. (if you are vegetarian no worries but tell us before you come so we are prepared)

If you want to know more check out our facebook or instagram pages with the links in our profile.

Please contact us by email. We are looking for people who are happy to try their hand at whatever tasks come up.

ALTERNATIVELY if you are looking for accommodation while you are working in the area, we offer an area to camp or park your van, or use our cabin. For a reasonable weekly rent you can have access to our workers kitchenette, bathroom and washing facilities and we would be happy to meet you and share a meal. (outside of Feijoa season only)
