We are a small farrow to finish free range pig farm located east of Carterton in the Wairarapa. This farm was started from bare blocks about 6 years ago and we have been putting in all the infrastructure ourselves.

We feed our cows, sheep, geese, turkeys, chickens, cats, dogs, and pigs every day so there is a lot of animal time. We also do a lot of things like planting trees and plants and tending the veggie patch. We have lots of small projects to improve the place and often need a hand. Some stuff is outdoors other stuff can be indoors. I make my own soap, syrups, jams, jellies, sausages, cider, etc etc. We also try to eat what we grow ourselves and raise our own meat and poultry. These activities are seasonal but always glad to have a hand.

We are currently looking for people to help us continue to get the self-contained barn unit ready for Help-xers. This barn has it's own living space with amazing views. It has a kitchenette, full bathroom, lounge and wood burner. Perfect set up for any length of stay. The work is well underway so it's getting close.

Days are flexible as Jeremy is full time pig farming on the property. We also can pick up and drop off locally or in Wellington as we do travel to the city during the week. For lots of photos see our Facebook page, website, and our twitter. Heaps of photos there.
