Our farm is in a remote and magical scenic area of the outer Marlborough Sounds. We have a number of cattle and their calves, hens, our dog Trixie, our cat Elmo, 2 friendly pet sheep, Ivan and Mavis. There are always interesting things that need attending to on the farm and in our vegetable garden. We have many areas of garden and regenerating native bush. Plenty of variety on the projects. We have good beaches and nice walks. One to two weeks stay works best for us. Your own transport is the easiest or there is a passenger service from Rai Valley Village. Check out our website if you need public transport. https://cairnhill.nz/read-this.shtml and you can email us anytime for help.

GENERAL INFORMATION
We grow most of our own vegetables. We make compost and use animal manures as fertilisers.
With winter we action a great progressive project to plant and regenerate areas with hundreds of native trees. Creating windbreaks, animal shelter, and native bird habitat. Come and join in on a creative and rewarding project. We generally work 4-5 hours a day. We have clean and cosy accommodation.
We thoroughly enjoy diversity and cultural exchange from around the globe. Most helpers having the opportunity to meet and mingle with some of the locals for a meal or two.

We depend entirely on natural energy. Solar and wind. A new experience for many helpers and volunteers. Our pure and crystal clear water bubbles up from a ground spring with enough for some of our friends and neighbours. This dependence on nature on a daily basis brings a reminder that any resource can be measured and has its own various limitations.
