Short term paid work if interested.
Child and animal care.



Hi, we are Lamea and Graeme, a couple in our 40s. We have two small girls, Clara, two, and Elsie Joy, five, who are absolutely lovely and love people staying (but like all children can get tired and grumpy, or call our attention away at times). Because you will live with us as a family, enjoyment of children is very important. They are involved in everything we do, and love to follow around, or ask you to join in games and activities.
Anyone with a Steiner/Waldorf background is especially welcomed here, as we would like to incorporate more of this in our children`s lives..

Most of the references below are from our life on a hill farm. We are moving to a new farm in mid June, a flatland farm, and need a couple to come and help us get our new place organised. This means helping set up the calf, hen and quail pens, preparing the vegetable garden for spring, helping make preserves, helping with kids, whatever suits... more inside

This quaint little farm is a family home to me (Barbara), my adult daughter (Tamzin) and my granddaughter. My elderly Mum and my stepdad have recently built a wee unit at the end of the farm so I can help take care of her. Our extended family is often visiting too.
We expect our helpers to be a part of our family whilst they are here.
We enjoy the interaction and conversation. If you are open minded, friendly and chatty you will fit in well. This is definitely not the place to be socially awkward!
I prefer people to stay for a minimum of one week, and longer if everyone is getting on well. If you want somewhere long term and we all get on well then just have a talk with me about it.

The farm is approximately 4ha/ 10 acres, close to southern alps where some of the lord of the rings movie was filmed.. It is quiet, peaceful, lots of birdsong. We are approx 100 km from Christchurch, 40 km from Ashburton, 25 km from Geraldine and 60 km from Timaru.
We embrace a variety of organ... more inside

Hi Travellers!

We are currently looking for an energetic traveller for two weeks from mon 13th august to friday 24th august to help with some childminding (and if two people some general spring clean around our rather large house)!

We manage a dairy farm 15 minutes south of Timaru as well as have 3 children (aged 4, 5 & 7) so we lead a rather busy life!

The childminding would consist of picking up our 4 year old daughter up from kindy at 2.30pm (we have a manual car available for your use - full drivers license a must!) then coming home and getting our 2 boys off the bus (it stops at our gate) and looking after them until about 5 or 5.30pm when we get home from work. They are great, easygoing kids who love too play outside. The boys are soccer mad at the moment!


If there are two of you the other would have some spring cleaning to do!
I am wanting to give the house a good once over inside and out so this will include:
- cleaning down walls/doors/ceilings etc (I have ... more inside

If you like gardening and children then this is the place for you. My husband works in Timaru (30 minutes away) and I also do some part time work.

We run a deer, sheep and dairy run-off property in Woodbury (10 mins out of the town of Geraldine, 1 hour from Tekapo and 2 hours from Christchurch). We are a well traveled couple who returned from overseas to a busy family farm, we have 4 boys (aged 6 to 13 years) and would appreciate someone keen to help out around the garden and/or farm (or house if not nice weather outside). The work/times are flexible and would depend on peoples skills or preferences with work including gardening, shelter belt planting and maintenance of native plantings, calf or lamb rearing, house or farmyard maintenance etc... We have a large spray free vegetable garden and orchard and during the growing season we supply our own vegetables so are always happy for help with that.
