Hi there!!
We have a small life style property in the sunny sunny Sth Wairarapa consisting of paddocks, gardens, fruit trees, and lawns etc...
The living spaces are very tranquil - spacious gardens and pool area - can be quite a bit to maintain sometimes.
There are a few animals here as well as many on surrounding farms.
The property has two dwellings, as well as an art studio, plus sheds and other farm buildings.
Help is always going to be very appreciated with the maintenance as well as the ongoing creation and construction of the garden areas etc.

The Wairarapa is situated just an hour north of Central Wellington and we are located 15 minutes from the wine region centre of Martinborough where some of NZ`s great wines are produced
There are many cafes, restaurants and vineyards
The property location is quiet and peaceful, located amongst farmland on the river with its own private swimming spots.

The next space is from 20th August. We live on a farm. It is about 15 minute dive to closest town. it is not essential to have a car.

One of my biggest enjoyments is showing others what we cook for dinner and then sitting down and eating as a family. We can explain a few aspects of farming if you are interested in knowing more. We like talking while having a cup of tea. we want you to have a good time exploring the beautiful farm. From our kitchen we can see Mount Taranaki and Mount Rauhaphu
. It is not always viewable but early mornings and sunsets are most likely to see. We have 24 great reviews of past help x people. We can sometimes say yes to arriving within a couple of days.

You can come live with us for between 10 days and 18 days. just give me dates and we are fairly flexible unless i have a help x booked in. Once you have dates confirmed from Rachel that space is yours. Having girls that get upset when some of our help x friends leave it is too difficu... more inside

Hi there! Thanks for checking us out.
There are two horse properties. One is a horse property, with rescued, retired thoroughbred race horses. The other is a working horse property where horses are trained and lessons are given.
I currently have an injury and I`m on crutches and can`t use my right arm, so I need help with feeding out, cutting and spraying of weeds; re-sewing; harrowing or mucking out paddocks. At the other property, Jane needs assistance mucking out; gardening; general grounds, gardens and paddock maintenance; clearing of sheds and outbuildings and maybe a wee bit of housework.
While not a necessity, an interest in horses would be really lovely.
You would not be staying on the property, but with me in my comfortable house, a few minutes drive away.
A driver's licence would be good.
We are meat eaters but happy to accommodate vegetarians if you`re willing to pitch in with cooking/ideas, but not vegans, sorry.
We are non-smokers.
You would be asked to hel... more inside

FAMILY
James was brought up on the family farm in the area and worked as a mechanical Engineer for before traveling and working abroad extensively for about 5 years. Upon returning to NZ, James decided to return to farming to enjoy the outdoors and hands on work. He purchased Millstone Farm 8 years ago and has two kids, Elsa and Maxime who spend time with us on the farm and in town with their mum.

Emma was born and raised in London, UK. She left the UK in 2016, spent time living in Hong Kong before heading to NZ to get some experience in farming. She has been working on the farm since then and loving working outside in contrast to her former days as a chemistry student and English tutor.
We have chickens for eggs, six working farm dogs, two puppies in training and a pet dog who would really like to be an only child.
