We live and farm a High Country property where we farm Limousin cattle, Perendale sheep and have an extensive pine forest.. The property rises to 800 metres above sea level with spectacular views of the Canterbury plains. Our boundary is the beautiful Upper Selwyn River Gorge area.
We are a hardworking and busy family with 3 young adult children. We have plenty to do around the Spring and Summer months, at home and on the farm.

We are looking for hardworking, enthusiastic and fun people to help in the garden and home surrounds plus to assist in the day to day life of a working Canterbury farming property.

We will provide good "old fashioned Kiwi homecooked meals" with a bit of International cuisine as well as great hospitality. A small hut with a double bed and one sofa bed with basic amenities is provided. We are interested in meeting people from other cultures and expect you to feel comfortable being part of our family. We have both travelled and love sharing experiences... 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.

4ha lifestyle block with 8yr old planting of natives and organic vege garden. You would need to be a non-smoker.
Vegetarian, bilingual household (german and english) comprising of 1 female adult, 4 horses, 2 dogs and 3 cats. 7km from Oxford township, 62 km from Christchurch. Close to scenic walking tracks (Mt. Oxford). Wonderful views and great riding country. In the past most helpers arrived and did not want to go anywhere for weeks.
Own transport needed if you want to get around - however regular lift into Christchurch and Rangiora possible.
I live a busy lifestyle and would like someone who would fit as part of our family of humans and animals. Due to currently working long hours on 2 days of the week you will need to be able to cope with lots of time on your own - doing your own cooking on those 3 days.
I prefer people who are motivated - with a positive, cheerful and relaxed attitude, able to work unsupervised, have initiative (ie picking up jobs when seeing they need t... more inside

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.

This is a sheep and beef property in the Canterbury Highcountry, 50km inland near the township of Methven.
