Help wanted on a lifestyle farm block, 5 minutes drive from Oamaru, and the harbour area of the Victorian precinct & Steampunk. Walking or push biking distance to town. A rural setting with a few cattle, sheep and a couple of horses.
In exchange for being in a lovely semi rural coastal location, some assistance with fence & house maintenance painting, tree planting, landscape/gardening and a little general maintenance is requested. This would also include some mucking out of paddocks and lawn mowing when needed. There are two horses for those who are interested in horse riding and able to exercise them, but not a requirement. Being motivated and some practical outdoors and DIY skills would be essential and comfortable around farm animals.
3-4 hours work a day in exchange for accommodation and meals. Approximately 3 days up to a week but can be negotiated depending on the time of year. Although I enjoy the work on the rural property, an extra pair or two of hands would make it easier.

Accommodation available for either a single person or couple in a spacious room with own outside access but shared 2nd bathroom/toilet. Modern house all double glazed and rural outlook on a lifestyle property. There is a comfortable outside sitting area. No smokers.
Flexible with hours but able to provide an evening meal and good conversation & company. Would appreciate to understand applicants background and rural DIY experience. I work both away and on property and enjoy the semi rural lifestyle. Having a vehicle would be useful but within easy walking distance of Oamaru town.
