Hilary and I live in a 3 bedroom strawbale house which , with the help of family, friends and HelpX we built over 3 day week-ends for three years. The house is on just over 6 hectares and has sheep, goats, honey bees, native tree plantings, an orchard, soft fruits and nut trees.
We grow and make as much of our own food as possible; bread, cakes, pickles, yoghurt and jams are created in the kitchen, vegetables and fruit come out of the garden and meat comes from our animals.
We are looking for Helpx guests who are interested in and want to be involved in sustainable living, creating their own buildings, permaculture, etc. We are happy to help you with this journey. We would love you to have some skills in digging, weeding, building etc.

The house is 16 km west of Geraldine with views to the mountains [the Four Peaks] and the sea.

I have only recently moved back to the Farm. I grew up on this farm but has been away for a number of years and things need doing to get it back how I like it.

I spend some time off farm but are flexible about work hours and/or pay. Work will be varied depending on skills but could include gardening, housework, maintenance around the farm, working with sheep or beef cattle or driving tractors. Crops raised include Wheat, Peas, Ryegrass Seed & Vegetable Seed crops.The farm also runs some Sheep & Cattle. Our helpers almost always leave with new skills which often include operating Quad Bikes and Tractors. At certain times of the year I can find paid work for you.

I am easy going & well travelled, I like to enjoy life.I'm also a Couch Surfer host and like to meet people from elsewhere in the world. Interests include Mountain Biking, Fishing, Gardening, Self Sufficiency, Music, Travel, Camping & Hiking.

The farm is close to Ashburton (8km) which has all services. Rivers, Rec... more inside
