UPDATE 20/11/17: We are now looking for people from 22/01/18 onwards for a minimum of two weeks. Many thanks.

We are a family with young children living on a historic property 10 minutes from Darfield in central Canterbury. We are looking for people to help us with mostly outside jobs who are self-sufficient, reliable and enthusiastic.

In addition to being a working farm, we also have a successful tourist business and one of the most significant gardens and arboretums in the region. The property is renowned for its beauty with its own hills with views extending from the Alps to the sea and a variety of listed buildings. It is also very accessible being close to the thriving communities of Coalgate, Darfield, Glentunnel and Hororata and all the region has to offer including skiing (Mt Hutt and Porters ski fields are both 50 minutes away), hiking, fishing, mountain biking and climbing.

There is a variety of tasks on the property which dependent on your skills and the season can include gardening, farming, building, forestry, tourism and a host of other things in-between. Examples could be tasks such as garden tidying, tree planting, weed and site clearance, lawn mowing, archiving, meal preparation, reading to the toddler the list goes on.

Accommodation will be in a lovely 1800s cottage which has been freshly painted with separate bedroom, sitting room, bathroom with shower and washing machine, kitchen with dining area and a huge loft space. Wifi is also available. We can provide bikes but you will find it more helpful to have your own vehicle.
