We run an "Alternative Lifestyle" Bed & Breakfast and adult event venue, in rural North Canterbury. We have large gardens (fruit, berries, vegetables and leisure) and extensive tree hedges that take more time than we ourselves have for upkeep, so we're looking particularly for help with the outdoors. We use our gardens to feed guests the freshest possible food.

Our place is unusual, not for the prudish, but we do have a lot of fun!

We'd recommend you take a look at our website before you contact us, so you get a better idea of what we are about.

We'd recommend anyone who comes to help out has their own transport, as the nearest public transport is 13kms away, in Rangiora, or a weekday only twice daily commuter shuttle to Christchurch that runs early morning and late afternoons.

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.

This is a small dairy farm with a herd of lovely pedigree Jersey cows. Come and learn about all of the activities associated with dairying in a warm, friendly and relaxed atmosphere (no stress here). Jobs are varied - from painting fences to feeding calves, from gathering firewood to helping in the milking shed. There are activities to suit all types of skills and physical abilities but you must be prepared to get grubby and to get up close to the farm animals. The farm is a day trip away from the ski fields and 40 minutes from the centre of Christchurch. You will need to have your own transport to get here (and having a pair of gumboots would be good as the dairy shed can be very wet). I would like you to stay for six days please. Day 1 Friday - arrive after 3pm (dinner). Day 2 Saturday - work 9am to 5pm (breakfast/morning tea/lunch/afternoon tea/dinner). Day 3 Sunday - free day to go sightseeing (breakfast/packed lunch/arrive home in time for dinner). Day 4 Monday - same as da... 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.
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). Other nearby facilities are The Bealy Hotel (10mins) and Arthurs Pass 20mins. In exchange I would like four hours work... more inside
