We are looking for a house sitters for the winter
We have a 60 acre property consisting of a Vineyard, Olive grove, fruit and vegetable garden and livestock.
We would like people to help with physical work on the farm - e.g. vineyard work, irrigation, gardening, tree pruning, clearing weeds etc. At the moment we need help with pruning our fruit trees Generally we expect 4- hours a day if you are eating with us .also. 3 hours if you are cooking yourself. i will provide food.
We have a separate sleep out with toilet and cooking facilities for you to cook your own meals
We are 10km from Renwick or 20km from Blenheim and have bikes available for transport. or can share transport when we go to town.
Non Smokers only please. This work here best suits 2 people.
We have a lovely river to swim in at the base of our property and walks you could go on.(Waihopai river) Ruby our golden labrador would love to go with you!

Work is in short bursts of a week or so, but the timing of the work varies with the season and the year, we cannot predict what week we will need help weeks or months in advance, so contact is best just prior to you being available.
The work is hard physical work.
we have firewood to work on at the moment.
You may prefer to work for a whole day then have full day off to explore.
