We are a retired couple and both have fitness problems at the moment, so we desperately need some help. We are very easy to get along with and young at heart. Loburn is a lovely part of the country, and we live on a sheltered property. The main thing we need help with is moving wood, burning branches, a bit of light tree trimming with chainsaw [supplied] and some clearing of weedy areas. Accomodation is a warm caravan with all cooking and toilet facilities. Own vehicle needed so you can go off sightseeing etc if you like. Thank you.

Nestled in the beautiful Southern Alps is the historic settlement of Cass (approx half way between Christchurch and Greymouth). I am offering private accommodation (separate from the house with own bathroom)in exchange for odd jobs - painting, gardening and lawn mowing.
I also have a horse drawn wagon seen in the photo's which is needing a keen horseperson to drive and keep working.
There is plenty to do in the area including fishing on many of the nearby high country lakes (1.6 km to Lake Sarah) day walks/ tramping in Arthurs Pass National Park and Craigieburn forest Park, skiing on one of the 5 local ski fields, four wheel driving, Scree jumping (down Sugar Loaf). A short drive to Cave stream scenic reserve (one of the south Islands best free activities) and Castle Hill natural rock climbing park (where scenes from Lord of the Rings and Narnia were filmed).

We live on a sheep and beef farm just out of Cheviot. We are about ten minutes drive from the coast (Gore Bay, a great surfing spot). We've got 2 lovely house dogs, 1 retired sheep dog, 2 horses, 2 donkeys, 2 kunekune pigs, a pet sheep and 4 cats. Then there are the 4500+ sheep and lambs and 3-400 cattle and calves on the farm.

It's lambing time. We need some help with tailing. It's messy, hard work but you will have the time of your life! We have vacancies now until mid October.


Bryan runs Harris Meats, which is located on our farm. If you don't eat/like meat, then you may not like our place. If you do, then you will be amazed at how good the meat here is, and you will know exactly where it came from!

There's lots of sporting activities around here, Bryan plays squash, cycling, rugby, walking, and if you are keen on surfing or fishing, the river and sea are nearby.

If you are a horse rider, you are welcome to ride the horses but you do need to be experien... more inside

Hello Helpers.

As we head into the warmer months we are primarily looking for helpers who are expert painters. We have some painting projects outside and inside to be completed. If you are able to assist with other duties also like gardening, planting, watering, general maintenance and some domestic duties like cleaning we would love to hear from you.

We opened our guest house accommodation in December 2013. The Spa Therapy room is operational and we have small group dinners and cooking demonstrations booked in for 2014.

We are located in Cheviot, North Canterbury approx 1 hour and 20 minutes drive north of Christchurch or 50 minutes drive south of Kaikoura. You could check out www.cheviotnz.com

We are not organic but do grow our own vegies, fruit and herbs. Apart from painting we have a variety of jobs we need help with such as gardens to plant and weed, lawns to mow, general maintenance and cleaning. If you have building skills these would be useful too as w... more inside

Hi there thank you for checking out our profile, we are a family of 3 with my two lovely girls being 11 and 13 years old.,
We live 15 min from Rangiora on the banks of the Okuku River and under Mt Thomas. On our small farm live 11 horses and ponies, sheep, two donkeys + baby donk "Archie", two dogs and two cats. We live a really busy life with a sign at the door saying "welcome to the madhouse", as I'm working as a midwife locally and my kids are busy at school etc We warn you we are totally crazy on ponies and horses. That's why we always appreciate a helping hand as our life is full on and the job list glares at me to catch up!.
Work will include poop picking , riding,gardening, housework and some general farm work. Depending on your skills and size we can usually sort out an appropriate pony or horse for you to ride (with supervision if needed). Recently we had a huge wind storm and still have a bit of wood to split and stack on a sunny day. so anyone with muscle or handy... 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.
Our horses are trained for and compete in Endurance Racing,so helpers must be experienced in riding horses in wide open spaces at speed.

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.

We are fully booked through till August 2013.
