We live on a 20 acre lifestyle block, with a few sheep and cattle, three cats, a guitar, piano and a large organic vege garden and fruit trees. Our children are grown up and only one (17)still lives at home. We like meeting new people and we are happy to help you practice your English :)

We have bicycles you can borrow to explore the neighbourhood or bike to the beach. The outside hot spa is marvelous on cold evenings. Accommodation is a comfortable sleepout, using the bathroom in the house and sharing meals with us.

At the moment I'd like help in the garden - the autumn always brings lots of garden tidying, harvesting and preparation of fruit for preserving. Dishwashing is always appreciated, some house cleaning, and if you can cook that is even better. If you are technically savvy I have some audio cassettes I'd like transferred to digital sometime.
About 4 hours work per day for food and accomodation. We are happy for you to work flexible hours or work 8 hours one... more inside

If you enjoy working with horses and an outdoor lifestyle we would like to hear from you.
My husband and I run a small horse and cattle farm, backing on to Forestry and walking tracks. 10klms from Rangiora.10 mins drive from beach.

We need helpers for general farm work- chainsaw and weed whacker experience is a bonus.

Our horses are experienced competitors in Endurance and other deciplines,so helpers must be very experienced in riding in open spaces at pace and on all terrain.

Does exploring the surrounding countryside on horse back and travelling with horses appeal?

The help we require involves day to day care of horses and riding out plus some gardening and farm work.

Accommodation is a private self contained sleepout suitable for couples, your own vehicle is essential as we are out of town.


This is our busiest time of year so if you are keen we have plenty to keep you occupied and would love to hear from you.
