We live ten minutes out of Cheviot and 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, 4 kunekune pigs, a pet sheep and 4 cats.

There is lots of work to do with cutting up the fallen trees so if you can use a chainsaw that would be great. If not, there is branch tidying work. We also have a mountain of pine cones that need to be bagged up. The garden also needs lots of attention. More than just weed pulling, if you feel like getting creative with the landscaping, we can give you a project. If you have any expertise in pruning, that would be very useful.

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 cycles and watches a lot of rugb... more inside

Oxford). Wonderful views and great riding country. In the past most helpers arrived and did not want to go anywhere for weeks.

Hello, we have a 'boutique' dairy farm on the edge of Oxford, North Canterbury, where we sell fresh, real milk through our Village Milk vending machine. We milk around 20 cows year round and this has been a very popular addition to our farm. Our eldest daughter has enjoyed doing Help Exchanges overseas so we would love to give someone the same opportunity!

We have a few big jobs on at the moment that we would like some help with in preparation for winter, including altering a shed, and clearing yard areas. We also have ongoing jobs such as feeding out, weed spraying, gardening, tidying and household chores so depending on the day there will be some variety.

We would like one person aged 20 and over who has reasonable English and has had a little bit of experience on a farm already so they are ready to jump in to help with anything. Hours/days of work are flexible but we would expect around 4-5 hours a day, depending on the jobs and weather. Maximum 7 day stay.
