Hello

We are Gary and Vicki and live on a small farm just outside of Darfield, around 30 minute drive from Christchurch.

We are self sufficient and have Hens and chickens, sheep, calves and heaps of fruit trees and veggie gardens. We are a sprayfree organic farm and grow what we eat. We milk our own sheep and make cheese and Greek yoghurt from it. (Oct to Feb)
You can help with the Sheep Milking and have a go at making our cheese, yogurt and ice-cream.

There is always work to do on our farm. We are in need of help right now with Calf Feeding and Lambing If the weather is good then getting the Vegetable Garden up to date and any other farm chores like pruning the orchard, looking after the hens etc, getting the milking shed ready for Spring and collecting firewood. Most of the work is outdoors so can be a little cool this time of the year.


We are able to offer a warm house with a log fire, a comfortable bed, delicious food from the land and a great New Zealand experience. We live just in front of the Waimakariri river so there is also lots of fishing if you want. This time of year the weather is changeable so some days we may have to work a few extra hours to get jobs finished

Feel free to email/text me if you are around. Always looking forward to meeting new people.
Kind Regards
Gary and Vicki
