Our property is a 2 hectare lifestyle block with an extensive garden and a menagerie of animals - see website for more details.
I am an at-home Mum/Gardener and my partner, Rudi, is an air traffic controller. We have 2 children - Josie (16 years old), whose main passion is horse riding, regularly competing in dressage competitions and showing. Our 19 year old son, Nic,is studying a Financial Engineering degree at Canterbury University and is currently living on campus.
We occasionally have garden groups coming to visit and so the garden has become my place of work. As the garden is rather large, I'm needing some help with weeding, mulching, pruning and general upkeep of the property.
We are happy to provide meals and accommodation - we have a newish bedroom, with a Queen sized bed (plus can add a single) and bathroom in exchange for gardening,cooking, painting and the odd household chore (in the event of wet weather). You would help yourself to lunch and breakfast most of t... more inside

Hi, we are a well travelled, English family of 4, who have lived in NZ for 6 years now. We're are out most of the day, either at work (Phil in Christchurch, Alyson in Rangiora) and our 2 teenage kids are at school in Christchurch.

We have a small lifestyle block that is mostly garden, however we do have a few sheep, pigs, chickens and bees.

The accommodation is separate and self-contained, ideally suited for 1 person or a couple. Complete with cooking facilities, shower, double bed, lounge, TV, WIFI etc.

We are offering accommodation only, although you are welcome to join the family meal occasionally as circumstances permit.

Hello we are Churchy and Alice.

We live on a lifestyle block with sheep, cows and chickens. We are very keen to be organic and are learning about the process.

We are looking for positive, happy, enthusiastic and outgoing people to join our life style.

We ask for 4 hours a day assistance, in exchange for free accommodation and all the other things that we provide.

We have built a cosy cabin on our property, near a small stream, which you will be staying in (see photos). The cabin has running water, a woodfire, gas stove to cook on, and a flush toilet. We haven't yet built a shower at the cabin, so showering is up at our house.

We have a small lifestyle farm with all the usual animals, horse, cows, goats, pigs, chickens, dogs, cats, birds, fish.....
We breed Dexter cattle and Angora goats. We milk one Jersey cow for the house milk and to feed either calves or pigs. My horse is retired, aged 24, but still loves to be ridden gently down the road.
There are just the two of us here now, sometimes we have international exchange students who go to the local school as well.
I would love help to get all the odd jobs finished around the property. There is always weeding the vegetable garden, fixing a fence, planting some trees or cutting and burning the horrible prickly gorse hedges!
Accommodation and meals are with us in the house.
