No vacancy until mid Sept now.

We are looking for happy, energetic & outgoing individuals to help us with our gardens, weeding, weed spraying, painting, chain sawing, firewood, fencing, small building projects, animal care, general house cleaning and a multitude of various other tasks on our busy rural property of 126 acres. We run sheep and cattle, have chickens and 4x horses.
We grow most of our vegetables in our glasshouses and gardens and do not use any chemicals or pesticides in the vegetable areas.
Meat is from the farm or the local beach where we sometimes go fishing.

We have available for your accommodation a self-contained flat with a separate entrance adjacent to our home with all facilities independent to the main homestead including your own bathroom, kitchen and fireplace. The main bedroom is on the mezzanine floor with a queen sized bed and a single bed in the lounge.

Food and accommodation per each night of stay will be provided in exchange for 4 hours labor.
You can work longer days and then take days off - we are flexible on hours.

Your breakfast & lunch ingredients are provided for you to make yourself in the self contained unit. I usually cook the dinners or if we are out the dinner will be supplied for you to make in your own kitchen.

We will work together during the daytime most of the time.

There are lots of hikes and walks in the area and a local beach.

Unlimited WIFI/internet available.

Only 20 mins to Wellington City and the ferry terminal and 8 mins drive to the Johnsonville shops.
Due to our location and type of jobs, we prefer couples or two friends to host at one time, with a minimum of at least five nights. You will require YOUR OWN CAR as we have no public transport near by.

We are a smoke free property
