Our family runs a backpackers with accommodation in railway wagons we also farm sheep and grow some crops and have a shearing run. We breed train and compete horses with a focus on eventing .they have been out of work over winter as our rider is overseas until October. Starting to bring them back into light work in preparation for riders return as well as handling young stock . If you are experienced with horses we could have some riding work.
We can offer a variety of opportunities to experience the rural kiwi lifestyle.
Our backpackers is quiet at the moment so we are starting a good spring clean ahead of a busy season. We have gardening and renovations alongside general farm work. Skills in painting,building,gardening general cleaning would be great. We like visitors to feel at home and even better if they enjoy cooking!
We prefer longer term helpers min 2 weeks.
We are based in the Waipara valley home to many fabulous wineries producing medal winning wines. You will find us at the junction of State Highways 1 and 7. Here we are an easy day trip to Kaikoura or an hour to skifields less than an hour to the great Hanmer thermal pools or to Christchurch. Good river and sea fishing and host of other activities.
We are looking for help 4 hours a day for full accommodation including food. Own transport would be best however we may sometimes have a car available for use.
