We have a beautiful home set on ten hectares with an amazing view of the stunning Diggers Valley. There is mixed native bush, along with paddocks for the goats, quails and the farmers beef cattle. The house is comfortable and warm and being redecorated at the moment.
We are looking for helpers to stay and help with a range of jobs, of course the decorations, but also weed control, gorse removal, fencing, gardening, plumbing, electrical, paddock creation, goat health maintenance, firewood collection, pest control, lawn maintenance and general duties. These are all the things we have to do....not all of them are needed every day and will depend on the time of year

Your own vehicle is needed to get in and out of town.
We are also located along the Te Araroa Trail so walkers wishing to stop for a few days, take in the area and help out are very welcome.

No TV or mobile reception, but we have Wifi, own bathroom, shared cooking facilities, DVD/Bluray/PS3 and Internet radio.
There is a room for reading, and there are many books on Native trees, plants and wildlife for you to enjoy.

Work will be dependant on the weather and range from 1-5hrs per day.There is both inside and outside work. Of course weekends are free, or at least 2 days per week anyway.

Evening meal will be supplied only, however if some good work days are done then we can supply more. There is a spare fridge for you to keep your own food and you may use our kitchen.
Please no smoking.

If you wish to come and stay please let us know the dates and any skills you have that will be helpful.

Richard and Abbey.
