Hi, We bought the property with a small forest, cut the trees, milled the wood and built a house. The hard yards are done but we need help with our small lifestyle block in Te Uku 7 mins from Raglan. Daniel is an Architect and Carpenter working from home and I am the house manager (in other words... mother) It would be great to have some help around the house but need help currently in the garden weeding around the 700 Xmas trees. There are odd jobs and building bits and pieces so a builder or joiner would be awesome and travelling couple travelling even better. You may be required to help around the house/garden and and even keep an eye on the live wire kids. (5 and 8 years old). We have a stunning guest room within the house to offer and ask for 4 hours a day work in exchange for food and accommodation.

Raglan is a great place to enjoy the beach, surfing walks and the alternative lifestyle.

Please call us if you have any questions and we look forward to having you.... more inside

HORSE RIDING, DOGS, CATS, AND OTHER FARMING FUN

My name is Erana and with my partner Ted and our 2 boys Camden aged 15 and Kade aged 12 we run a small horse farm.

We breeds both race horses and dressage horses and train and race horses. We are keen to have helpers that are experienced horse people to help with the horses or for less experienced horse people to help muck out stables, gardening, farm maintenance etc.
For safety reasons the people staying must speak reasonable English to understand safety instructions.

We offer nice room with queen size bed with own bathroom and food in return for approx 5 hours a day labour. Prefer people who want to stay for 2 weeks or longer and with skills and experience with horses.

Hi there,
We are looking for some keen young people to help us on our dairy farm from anytime now until the end of March. We hope you can stay at least 2 weeks.

Some previous farm experience would be nice but not essential and if you have had some experience riding 4 wheel motorbikes that would be even better.

You will be helping with the milkings, working with stock, cleaning the shed, splitting firewood (with a log splitter), weed spraying and just generally helping out.

We would prefer a couple or 2 people travelling together as you will be sharing a double bedroom in our modern family home. Free Wifi, meals and good company are provided in return for about 4 hours work per day.

Having your own transport would be good as there is lots to explore after your days work is done. Our farm is 9km south of Tokoroa in the South Waikato and is close to the tourist hotspots of Taupo and Rotorua.

If you are friendly and enthusiastic and show us some effort we are more th... more inside

Hi - we are currently looking for someone. We prefer someone who can stay around month mainly to help out with the horses. Must have some previous experience with horses.

We are a fun (maybe crazy) family (2 boys and a girl - all at school), a heap of horses and ponies, dog, cats, calves, and chooks. Living in rural Waikato but only 1 hour from Auckland, Coromandel and Hamilton. Our life is busy and never boring, always lots happening.

We would love help mainly with the horses and ponies. Caring for them, including feeding, and riding if capable. Also general lifestyle jobs like feeding chooks, collecting eggs or feeding hay to the calves. We would treat you as part of the family but you would have your own living space with a lovely spacious separate building near the house but on its own. We will supply food and accommodation in return for your help.

Looking forward to meeting travelling folks from around the world and hearing about your homeland.
