We are a small boutique Christmas Tree farm, located in South Head, about 25 minutes from Helensville.

We need help for the month of December. This is the time of year when we harvest the xmas trees for sale. Work involves moving the trees to stack in a pile and then help load them onto a truck/trailer or car. I do all the cutting with a chainsaw. We will do other small farm work if not doing trees. You will need to be reasonably fit as there will be a lot of walking to and from to move the trees. Also some early morning starts. If your interested please let me know asap.

The farm itself is based on just over 10 hectares and has viewed of the Kiapara, with easy access to the local lagoon, regional parks, offering great fishing, walking and enjoyment of the local scenery.

We have 2 cats, chickens, cattle, and sheep, and we are surrounded by the local Deer farm.

Your hosts will be Jason, a local builder and Christmas Tree farm owner, and Erica, who also is involved with the Christmas trees, but also works in the City. We have a daughter who goes to the local school and enjoys playing Netball.

You will stay in our family home with your own room with breakfast, lunch, evening meals and snacks. Comes with free WiFi.

Work hours will be around 4-6 per day.

The farm is peaceful and is a great place to relax, with nice friendly local people.

If you would like to try a different type of NZ farming send us a message.

We look forward to hearing from you :-)

We can also pick you up in Helensville.
