We are not available at this time.


We have help with gardening, picking up branches, taking down farm fences and some house tidy work.
We haven't had heplx helpers for 2 years as we had a farm worker.
We are a family of 5, including 3 sons aged 21, 19 and 16 and a very spoilt cat. We are a sheep and cropping farm.
We are 1 hour north of Christchurch with Hamner Springs Thermal reserve and forest walks 45 minutes away and Kaikoura 1 1/2 hours away. We have a large warm family home and extensive garden with great mountain views. You will get to experience life on a farm.
Duties may include farm work - from tractor work to helping in sheep yards and helping Kate around our large park like garden and general house cleaning and tidying. We ask that you work for 4 hours each day in return for home cooked meals and accomodation. We require you to have medium practical know how, be able to drive and be hard working. Non-smoker. We have accomodation in our home. We only have helpers two times a year.
