Experience life on a real NZ farm in a beautiful part of the North Island, close to the Tongariro crossing, ski fields, Whanganui River journey and other great outdoor adventures / hikes.

Our farm is situated on the beautiful / iconic Taihape- Napier road so perfect for people making their way to Hawke's Bay - it is a beautiful drive, not many people know about!

We are a super friendly young couple and have a french au pair here too - it is 5 hours work per day in return for food / board and some activities.

You must like animals, be friendly, enjoy physical work and easy to get along with.

We need people at the moment to build and paint bee hive boxes - you get to work independently, play your own music and be in charge of your day.

We are also looking for people to take care of our house / animals while we are away over Christmas - let me know if interested.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Hi, we are looking for one or two friendly helpers from end of January 2018 on. Ideally you like gardening and/or woodwork. PLEASE OUTLINE any special SKILLS WHEN APPLYING.

You will have your own comfortable large room, in a lovely, 100 year old villa with a beautiful mountain view. River and city center are only a 10 min walk away and it is a 10 min drive to the beach. Tongariro National Park and Mount Taranaki are an 1.5h drive away, Whanganui National Park only 30 min.
Our place has a small organic garden, including fruit trees and berries. We share it with two cats, 7 chickens and a worm farm. We are interested in nature (in particular entomology), art and healthy living. We speak English and German and enjoy meeting people from all over the world.
We expect you to work 4 hours a day (if you wish 6 hours for two days and have one day off), the ideal length for people staying seems to be from 1 to 2 weeks, but we are happy to negotiate longer stays for people with woodwork... more inside

I need help with some gardening and general yard work to keep things tidy over the months of Nov through to February. This will involve physical work such as weeding and trimming edges, clearing and cleaning up after the winter season and helping in an organic vegetable garden. This is an unpaid position but we eat well and the views are great and the sense of peace profound. There is outside accommodation in a bunkroom or inside the house. This would ideally suit someone who wants just a few days work as they travel on. Having your own transport would allow you to be able to get to town as you need - we're located 30 mins drive from Wanganui in a rural setting, 800 hectares hill country beef and sheep farm. Limited mobile phone reception. Use of internet and phone would be negotiated. Non smoker preferred.
