Hi There Helpers,

We have a small flock of sheep, a hobby vineyard and a good sized garden and are looking for one helper to start sometime during the next weeks or so to help with lambing and caring for and bottle feeding any orphaned lambs we may have. We have lots of other work as well including vineyard work and clearing to be done in our garden as well as our usual farm work so it can be quite varied.

Our property runs from the road down to a small beach where we keep a couple of kayaks helpers can use or just swim, walk and enjoy our beautiful little bay.

At other times of the year we have work available clearing tracks, working with our sheep, gardening, painting, working in the vineyard, cleaning or any number of things, usually with Peter and in a beautiful place with amazing views of the hills and harbour.

Robyn works four days a week at the local YMCA so you would be working with Peter most of the time.

We would like you to work four to five hours a day with us(or whatever suits us both) in return for a room and good healthy, varied meals. Peter loves cooking on the barbeque and sharing his knowledge of grape growing and making his own wine and beer.

If you don't have your own transport you can take the Christchurch to Akaroa shuttle bus, get off at Barry's Bay (where the cheese factory is) and we will collect you from there.

Definitely no smoking or drugs. We have a very old dog (Molly) sharing our house with us. We also have a kitten called Jeffrey who loves people and is heaps of fun.
