I have a 3 hectare property which most of is used for grazing cattle. There is a large garden which is a work in progress right now. Would love some help with the progress. Lots of weeding and general tidying. Maybe some cleaning and cooking if you enjoy. I have a golden retriever who loves walks as well as 2 cats who love cuddles. I work as a teacher 3 days a week so you need to be motivated to work on your own. You will have your own room and bathroom with breakfast provisions and evening meals provided. We are close to the beach, Motueka and not that far from the Abel Tasman Park.

Small lifestyle block in picturesque Upper Moutere. We have one spare room with a double bed so would best suit a single person, couples or close friends :-). There's me and my wife, our two offspring (18 and 16), a cat and 25 chooks also in residence (chooks outside). Looking for mostly some weeding to be done (maybe 10 -12 hours work?). In return we'll house and feed you.

We have a 5 acre farm 300 metres from Ruby Bay beach. Ruby Bay is conveniently between Nelson and Abel Tasman National Park. We have a beautiful established garden, vegetable plot and orchard. We also raise rare breed pigs (Large Black or Devons), chickens, American bronze turkeys, Khaki Campell ducks and Gotland sheep. We have two beautiful riding horses. Our 4 bedroom farmhouse is comfortable and cosy and has beautiful views out to the ocean. We both work full-time, use one bedroom in our house as an AirBnB so are looking for help with gardening, animal husbandry, firewood, cleaning and various other odd jobs as the seasons dictate. We are able to be flexible about helping hours and are able to provide bed and breakfast and offer horse riding for experienced horse riders.

Karen and Paul and our 3 grown-up girls. We moved to a new home in Kina near Nelson with 4 hectares last year. Here we have a few cattle and a horse. A productive vegetable garden full of deliciousness, as we enjoy mostly, good healthy home grown food. We grow strawberries, cherries and boysenberries for sale. Paul loves fishing, so that is frequently on the table. We eat most healthy foods and occur others not so!!. Karen grows lots of flowers and does wedding settings, flower arrangements etc. Emily our Vet Nurse daughter and husband Matt have moved into our sleepout next door, while they build a new home nearby. We have fairly hectic lives, though usually only one daughter at home now. Lucie has just moved to Wellington where she is following her passion in fashion design. Our youngest Mollie just finished her last year at uni, doing business studies, is back home for the summer. Accommodation is in our spacious guest room, food is provided,

Will you be our next Helper(s)? We've had some truly lovely travellers stay with us, and their help has been awesome. Our farm is mixed stock (cattle, horses, hens, pets etc) in a quiet, attractive, private valley, with an older traditional partly-renovated wooden farmhouse. We are developing the gardens, natural bush areas and wetlands. The gardens normally grow a lot of our food, & our hens are free-range. The property is entirely independent for power, with mainly solar power. We enjoy sharing the area with travelers, and we also enjoy board/card games, laughter, stories. We offer meals and accommodation for 4 hours help daily per adult. Activities may include gardening, developing native areas/gardens, chores, or similar. For safety reasons we are a non-smoking property. Excitingly, as we develop more of the bush and gardens, the native birds are increasing... Weka, Kea, Bellbirds, Tui, Koreru, Fantails, Morepork, Bush Robins etc.
We are just one hour from all 3 National Parks... more inside

We have a lovely life-style block with chickens, cows, cats, and a horse. We have a new modern guest house available for hard working folks happy to help out with various projects around the property, including gardening, landscaping, building and improving our mountain bike and jump track, eliminating old man's beard and gorse, some house cleaning, weeding, cutting fire wood, and other non-technical chores. The majority of our talks suit physically fit individuals who enjoy working in the outdoors.

We are flexible about which days you work so you can maximise your enjoyment of the region.

We are avid mountain bikers and more than happy to take people on local trails (you would need your own bikes or to hire some) around the region. Nelson is simply incredible for mountain bikers!

Update for keen mountain bikers! We have just completed the first phase of our very own downhill pump and jump track. 400m or so ready to ride and we are keen for your help to make it even more a... more inside

Kia ora,

Come and be our Helpxer and enjoy a wonderful sunny location with a gorgeous sea view. Just 7km from central Nelson, it is a very popular region for travellers with access to the Abel Tasman just over an hour away.
You can ride the bicycle trail into town which takes about 20 minutes or else there is a bus stop not far away or even better if you have your own transport. We designed and built our home, constructed from Adobe Blocks which is a sustainable method of building using local materials such as clay and straw, it keeps everyone cool on the hot days and warm and dry on the coldest. Mostly, there is just the two of us and our cat Baxter, we both work so mid to end of week starts are usually our preference for up to one week Helpxing or more if it suits. We ask 4 hours per day but are flexible for longer days and then take a day or two off to explore our beautiful region. We have a few projects on the go such as internal adobe plastering, revamping our large garde... more inside

We live on a beautiful 5 acre farm on the shore of the Waimea Inlet. The estuary is home to many wading birds and much of our work is revegetating the estuary margin.

Minimum stay of 5 nights and we can pick you up from Nelson if required.

Plenty going on during summer, shearing, stock work, fencing, weed control, garden tidying, lawn mowing, lots of tractor driving etc. It would be great to have some strong keen workers to help fix fences and do some building work.

Our family of 4 (2 kids - 11 & 14 years old) live on a beautiful sheep and beef farm with large woodland garden and organic vegetable garden. We need help with stock work, general farming tasks, gardening, cooking and french language tutoring (if available). We're 40 minutes from Nelson, 15 minutes from Motueka. It's an idyllic rural setting with excellent access to rivers, mountains, mountain biking, Abel Tasman & Kahurangi National Parks etc. with easy access to some of the best fly fishing rivers in NZ (and the world!)

There's 4-6 hours work per day depending on tasks. Plenty of flexibility to work full days and have plenty of time off to explore.

Please be aware you may get hot, wet, muddy, dusty, and some jobs can be a bit smelly but rest ... more inside
