1 / FARM Helpers : small farm work maintenance work and work involved in growing tamarillos.

Visitors to New Zealand are welcome to come and experience small farm life by helping on our small farm near Whangarei. Work is very varied and could include, pruning, planting, weeding, mulching, picking tamarillos, lifting tubers and potting up plants etc - depending on the season. Also building maintenance work eg cleaning windows, roofs and walls and feeding the ducks and hens.

We offer a work in exchange for free food and accommodation situation.
Work 5hrs daily Monday to Friday in exchange for 7 days free food and comfortable accommodation. Weekends are free to explore the district. Both the east coast and the west coasts of Northland are within an hour's drive of the farm.

Work is offered on a reviewable and renewable basis weekly for up to four weeks.

If you are travelling with a friend, or friends who do not want to work but would like to accompany you that can be arranged.

Only applications from genuine backpackers currently travelling in New Zealand will be considered. Most of the work is of a seasonal nature and previous experience not required however there is always work for travelling tradesmen to visit and help with carpentry work in the house and outside, or for "handy men" who can fence, tile, clean roofs, split firewood etc about the place

The property is 17 Ks west of central Whangarei, handy to both of Northland's western and eastern seashores, the Matakohe museum, the Kauri forests and Whangarei.
