Looking for helpers after 20 December
We are offering a combined experience with some time on our 10 acres near Roxburgh and maybe some time on the high country merino sheep farm. We are an extended family, Fay, daughter, her husband and 4 children who have a very busy lifestyle. Our ideal helpers would be 2 friends or a couple who have their own transport, who can stay several weeks or more but with time off to explore our area which is close to Queenstown, Wanaka, Milford Sound and the Catlins. There is a lot of seasonal orchard work and we are happy to discuss a combination of working and HelpX.
We like helpers who have practical work skills and initiative to complete jobs thoroughly even though they might not always be someone around to instruct them. We get a lot of applications and will only choose helpers who can work an honest 4 hours a day but in return we will reward you with rich experiences of Central Otago NZ! Great references from previous hosts will also help you to be high on our list.

We are willing to provide private bedroom and good meals in exchange for 4 hours work a day (5 days a week) helping us on the farm, in our garden, house and spending time with the children. We are very negotiable with work versus days off arrangements (eg work more hours for several days and have several days off).
From the farm you can see some of the valley used for filming Lord of the Rings. Our area has a great variety of walking, cycling (bikes to use) and fishing activities to name only a few.
We have travelled to Europe and UK and enjoy meeting people from other countries, sharing our Kiwi life.
