I'm a blueberry and olive farmer with some pasture leased for grazing. Stuff to do includes tree planting and weeding, firewood, gardening, cooking, pruning. Pretty much organic, but when there is no other viable option, I occasionally use herbicides for serious weeds (the blueberries and olives are totally spray-free).

My place best suits self-motivated helpers who enjoy seeing the results of honest physical work. At the moment I really need strong, experienced HelpXers who can do heavy work such as splitting firewood; housework, cooking and spinning a good yarn are all desirable too :-). Accommodation is your own room(s) in my large house. I don't eat much meat - but when I do, it's wild-sourced or home-killed. Otherwise plant-based food - so no problems for vegetarians, but please let me know what you eat beforehand so I can plan meals. I generally prefer short stays, but if we work well together I also like extended stays. I have two cats and a dog. 16km from Takaka and a few minutes walk/drive/cycle from the beach; bike usually available to borrow. 2.5 km from the famous Mussel Inn. Note: cell phones usually only work for texting. Internet available, but no big downloads or uploads!
