We have a small lifestyle block/farm 15 minutes away from Motueka, and the Abel Tasman National Park, with a lot of free range chickens, some ducks, a couple of turkeys, geese and peacocks.

The property is also home to two Labrador dogs, two cats, two anti social llamas, and two horses, plus two miniature horses. The daily routine includes chicken feeding, egg collecting, egg cleaning and egg sorting (by size) ready to sell.

We also have vegetable and flower gardens to keep under control, chicken houses to clean and various other ongoing projects.

Help with all of the above would be great and there is always something to be done, either inside the house or out, cleaning and maintenance wise or some project in progress to be completed.

Accommodation would be in our guest cottage when available (not so much during summer, Dec-March) or well equipped caravan (has shower,loo and heater!). Lunch and money for the rest of your food is provided in return for 4-5 hours work. We try to have lunch all together (this sometimes doesn't work out if I am at work) after which you are free for the rest of the day. Work hours are flexible for those who would like to take time for sightseeing and enjoy the area.

Self starters who are able to work unsupervised and have a good sense of humour (who won't mind getting their hands dirty!) preferred. Own transport is a bonus (but not compulsory) as we are 2.5km away from the main road and not on a bus route.

The best way to contact us is via email as we don't always get a signal for our mobile phones at the farm. Also we like to see your helpx profiles!
Please note that internet access at the farm is limited as we have satellite broadband with only a small data cap.

Please take a look at our website to get an idea of the property.
