We are a family who run a deer farm and beekeeping business based in Greta Valley.

We also have a business making beeswax wraps - beeswax wraps are a reusable natural food wrap which can be used as an alternative to plastic wrap.

We would like short term helpXers (1 or 2 people) to come and help us with our beeswax wrap business - this involves assisting in the manufacturing and packing of beeswax wraps.

At certain times of the year we would also like assistance with gardening, beekeeping and farm activities.

In return for 4-6 hours work a day we will provide a great rural experience, accommodation and meals. Acccomodation is provided in the main house but upstairs seperate from the family.Wifi and cell coverage available.

Greta Valley is a great location to explore the Canterbury region - we are 20 minutes north of Amberley, 50 minutes north of Christchurh, 1 1/4 south of Kaikoura and 1 hour from Hanmer Springs.

Hi we are a young friendly couple with a baby boy on a sheep and beef farm. The farm is a hill property and is close to Amberley and the beaches along coast. Amberley is a lovely town with nice cafes, restaurants and bars. Also nice there are great shops and a Saturday farmers market to mooch about. We have a large sheltered Garden and a warm comfortable home. Lots of animals, wide open space and fresh air. Not to far from the city of Christchurch (1 hour) that has an international airport.

Come visit us and our stunning area and give us a hand in the garden, home and farm! We will give you a nice place to taste good kiwi food and our culture.

We live on a beautiful sheep and beef farm between Greta Valley and Cheviot. We live on the coast at Napenape beach a beautiful beach for photography, walking, surf casting and diving. We are only a few kilometres away from the popular surf/swimming beach called Gore Bay. We are also very close to the Hurunui River which is well known for its trout and salmon fishing as well as kayaking. There are plenty of walking tracks near our farm.

We have a small feijoa orchard and a large vegetable garden. We try hard to live off our land and love to entertain with friends.

We have had over 30 different sets of helpers and really enjoyed making new friends and sharing some of our kiwi culture with them.

We are looking for people to help mainly with gardening, housekeeping and general farm tasks. We love living on a farm and are keen to share our skills with those interested in trying some new things. We are flexible with the hours worked and the jobs done.

120 hectare deer farm in the North Canterbury foothills. Situated approx. 1 hour from Christchurch.

As the cottage is no longer available, accommodation is now offered in the main house -guest wing with double bed, own en suite and private outside sitting area. All meals provided in return for 4 to 5 hours work per day.

We have a working deer farm but at present, the main duties would be around the house - domestic cleaning, some tidying in the garden and whatever else needs doing at the time. We have three very friendly dogs who are happy to go for a walk too.

Mt Thomas is nearby if you are interested in tramping.

We can meet Helpers coming by bus to Rangiora or Woodend.

Length of stay - usually one to two weeks maximum.

We are a home-schooling family with 8 children, 5-6 still at home, 4 of them school-age. Both parents came from Germany as backpackers, and met here, so our home language is German. Our lifestyle block is home to 2 goats, 6 geese, a flock of domestic ducks, between 30 and 40 hens, and of course many wild birds, rabbits and the many tiny creatures of fields, woods and duck-pond. An old apple, apricot and peach orchard and a young walnut forest are also part of our little paradise. Amazingly, though situated just off SH1, our place affords a cosy sense of privacy, as it nestles behind an old pine-tree shelter belt and is lined with a row of poplar trees along the rest of its border. The township of Amberley is 5 min away by car or 1 hour by foot, where you can do all essential shopping, go to the bank, petrol station, gym, second hand shop or hairdresser. Rangiora, the next larger centre of North Canterbury, is 20 min away, and central Christchurch 40 min.

We are looking for helpers from September on!!!
We are lucky enough to live on a 10 acre life style block situated in North Canterbury . We have horses which are used primarily for dressage, show jumping and eventing. We also have a lovely property with a large easy care garden and Itís is always great to have some help in the garden, general weeding and spraying!!
But what I mainly need, is help caring for our horses. So we would love to hear from helpers that are really experienced and capable horse people! Especially those that have riding experience in dressage,show jumping and or eventing!!
Our horses are competition horses and young horses, so this means that they are not "school horses" I donít have time to teach you how to ride. So please read this carefully!!
If you are a capable rider then I would love to hear from you!!
We have 4 children, 2 are school age and 2 are finished with school and are studying away from home!

Hi there!
Our family needs a female help x worker (no experience necessary, just need a good attitude!) to help out at our farm and in our home over the next three months(starting after the first week in August) . There will be about 6-8 hours paid work each day ($18/hour), on top of the two hours for food and board. You will be living with our family, my partner Mitchell and I have two daughters (3 1/2 and 4 1/2 years old). If English is not your first language, it will be a great opportunity for you to improve your language skills. I used to be an English teacher in South Korea so I'm happy to help you with any English language questions.

The job will require babysitting, preparing dinner, cleaning, and helping on our dairy farm feeding calves (on the days the girls go to preschool).

This position will be more than just a job, you will gain a kiwi family for life!

All the best!
Pip

We live about ten minutes from the small town of Cheviot and enjoy a lovely setting in the country, surrounded by farmland. There`s a big garden, and the house is very comfortable, with good wifi too.

There is a general mix of work available but our main focus is to have someone here to be housekeeper / cook as I will be away for three weeks in September and two or three nights a week up until then. The main duties will be cooking the evening meal for Bryan (and in September Maurice as well), feeding the animals most days, getting the supplies in and housework. If you have any spare time, then baking or gardening would be helpful, plus taking the dogs for a short walk most days would be cool.

If your gig is landscaping and gardening, then we definitely have some work for you. We have some good projects in mind from building a small brick wall, planting out a wetland area and helping with mosaics creations.

We live about ten minutes drive from the coast (Gore Bay, a gr... more inside

Our property was previously an orchard but is now a small lifestyle block with main house and a separate 1 bedroom self contained cottage for accommodation. The cottage has a kitchen, bathroom and laundry. The kitchen has cooking appliances, plates, cups etc. There is a double bed in the bedroom and a comfortable double sofa bed in lounge. The cottage is 55m2 in area.

It is in a rural area 10mins from Rangiora and 45mins from central Christchurch by car. We are a professional couple (engineer and nurse) with two boys aged 10 and 12 who are always full of fun and energy. We are from NZ but lived in Scotland and travelled around Europe while there for 5 years. We have 2 cats, 1 dog and 1 pet sheep.

We have really enjoyed the many HelpX experiences we have had getting to know people from other parts of the world which has been the best part of the experience for our family.

We are looking for general help around the property such as gardening, maintenance, painting, f... more inside
