We live on a beautiful sheep and beef farm between Greta Valley and Cheviot. We live on the coast at Napenape beach a beautiful beach for photography, walking, surf casting and diving. We are only a few kilometres away from the popular surf/swimming beach called Gore Bay. We are also very close to the Hurunui River which is well known for its trout and salmon fishing as well as kayaking. There are plenty of walking tracks near our farm.

We have a small feijoa orchard and a large vegetable garden. We try hard to live off our land and love to entertain with friends.

We have had over 40 different sets of helpers and really enjoyed making new friends and sharing some of our kiwi culture with them.

We are looking for people to help mainly with gardening, housekeeping and general farm tasks. We love living on a farm and are keen to share our skills with those interested in trying some new things. We are flexible with the hours worked and the jobs done.
All meals will be included.

Can pick up from the bus in Cheviot. Main route for the intercity bus.
