We are located 40 minutes south of Hokitika and 1.5 hours north of Franz Josef, on a very small dairy farm. There are just over 100 cows and at the moment, lots of calves.
We have an 3 dogs, two cats and lots of poultry. There is a small pottery (domestic stoneware ceramics) room and kiln.
Our accommodation is a small cosy private sleep out with one bed and wifi.
We prefer a SINGLE over 25 year old person, who has same practical skills. Male or Female. Gardener,chainsaw, tractor driving, quad and trailer,building, landscaper, construction, stonemason, arborist. We always have a big variety of jobs. Fence clearing and firewood is the big task at the moment. Also. spring planting, potting up plants or painting.
There is always a variety of tasks with plenty of garden and landscape work to do.
Mostly outside physical jobs, some need a creative mind. We save the inside jobs for very wet days.
A person with an independent attitude and a good sense of humour. Length of stay is negotiable.
Meals provided and plenty of it. With extra fresh eggs and milk. No cooking or dishwashing. Always fresh biscuits (cookies).
We work rain or shine. A minimum 5 hours average a day although we are flexible, so you can arrange whole days off at the Glaciers, beach etc.
Gumboots, overalls, gloves, safety gear and rain coats can be provided as required.
No mobile signal but the wifi internet works well.

We are located in a peaceful valley and live a relaxed happy life. Beach walking and fishing nearby. Creek swimming at the back of the farm or the river in summer.

We are NOT vegetarian but do eat vegetables. Wine or beer is BYO ( bring your own ) please. We usually have a wine or beer ourselves.

It really helps if you say in your profile what work/study you have done before your Helpx time in NZ.
We will reply to all approaches and expect the same.
AND if after saying that you are going to visit and then your plans or situation changes please let us know in plenty of time as other helpers may have had to be turned away.
We do not pay to list on this site and therefore are not listed as premier hosts so if you do pay then you would need to get in touch with us first.

We look forward to meeting you.
