We will need 2 people from 29th June for 2 weeks only to help finish the harvest, or try again later in the year. Thank you.

On the east coast there is always lots of sun. The view is stunning.
We are in a great position- 1 hour from Picton and the Marlborough sounds, 2.5 hrs from Nelson and 1.5 hr to Nelson Lakes.We are 3.5 hours from Christchurch and 1 hour from Kaikoura.
We have 400 Olive trees in 2 groves and 150 hazelnut trees.
We host the Molesworth Tours once or twice a month for lunch and a tour around the grove. In return for good food and a comfortable room, we would love some gardening, harvesting, and general farm maintenance work to be done.
In March we harvest the nuts and in May/June/July we harvest the olives. In between times there is irrigation in the summer and mowing and weeding most of the time, fruit picking and preserving.

We have two lovely double rooms separate from the house with a shared en suite bathroom, good food and a happy home.

It is never boring.
