We are raising our two kids on a small eco-friendly farm on Banks Peninsula, 35 minutes from central Christchurch.

We offer a farmstay, with accommodation in a warm open-plan sleepout. We will provide you with food for your own breakfasts. You are welcome to join us for lunches and your evening meal. We would like helpers to work for four to five hours per night stayed helping us to regenerate native bush, farm chores and gardening.

At the moment we would love your help to plant native trees and help with firewood for next winter.

We aim to be as self-sufficient as we can. We grow and eat some of our food. We're not vegetarians. Our heating and hotwater is a mix of solar and wood burners with wetbacks. We try to recycle our waste including having composting toilets.

We have great walking and biking at our back door accessing Banks Peninsula's highest peaks. David travels into Christchurch each week day and is happy to pick you up at the museum. Absolutely no smokers please.
