Hi,
We have a beautiful home stay on 5acres, set within a 350 acre farm in the Wairarapa, Carterton district, Gladstone area. Close to the Rumahunga River, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, 15min from Masterton, 1.5 hrs drive to Wellington airport.
Great recreational activities to be had including, wine tasting, fishing and jet boating. We live in a great community and have a fun, busy family of 3 kids. My wife and I do split work.
We are looking for one person for October/November. Currently work is required in the garden, painting, firewood and also possibly beekeeping with an experienced beekeeper. It's amazing and interesting working in the field!

Hi there, It feels like its a beautiful sunny spring here. We have lambs and daffodils and milk hand fed claves at the moment. Im currently feeding twice daily 10 little newborn claves. Along with feeding the animals daily, I need some one to help move stock and maintain the outside in preparation for Summer.
But if you are not the outdoorsy type, I'd love to give the house a inside 'spring clean', People who can cook are always appreciated. Could you help out with that?

There is always plenty to be done, its a big space to maintain. It is beautiful here, work is totally seasonal and changes from month to month. We are a working farm with some really fun lifestyle hobbies. We run Cows, Calves, Sheep & Lambs. We have a Pig, Chickens & Horses. We also have a super friendly Dog & Cat and a pet Peacock.
We have a beautiful home set on a hill with a panoramic outlook of our 64 Acre Farm.
About ourselves: We are a energetic madcap family of 4 with two children, 11yrs and 14yrs, who... more inside

Hello, we are a sociable couple with a house in 5Ha of native bush 20 minutes drive east of the small wine village of Martinborough.

We are looking for a couple of people to help us with a renovation project we are doing on a 1860 "Villa" (a timber house from the early colonial period) in the nearby (25 minute drive) charming village of Greytown, just voted NZ's most beautiful small town. We could use help in October and possibly November of this year.

The tasks we need help with include helping sorting native timber which we are recycling in the re-build, constructing a picket fence in the front, laying some brick walks, clean-up, and landscape work. We would be working right there with you. It's a half-hour drive from our place in Martinborough where you will be staying with us. Ideally you would schedule your stay with us so you could work full days and then enjoy the same amount of time relaxing at our rural house or exploring the surrounding area.

This would be ideal f... more inside
