We have a working deer farm but at present, the main duties would be around the house - domestic cleaning, some tidying in the garden and whatever else needs doing at the time. We have three very friendly dogs who are happy to go for a walk too.

Mt Thomas is nearby if you are interested in tramping.

We can meet Helpers coming by bus to Rangiora or Woodend.

Our property is a 2 hectare lifestyle block with an extensive garden and a menagerie of animals - see our website for more details - breedenbroek.com
I am an at-home Mum/Gardener and my partner, Rudi, is an air traffic controller. We have 2 children - Josie (17 years old), whose main passion is horse riding, regularly competing in dressage competitions and showing. Our 20 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... more inside
