After having a break from Helpx for a year, we are back looking for awesome helpers. xxx
Hi, we are Lamea and Graeme, a couple in our 40s. We have Hamish, fifteen, a really kind and helpful young man, as well as two small girls, Clara, three, and Elsie Joy, six, 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.

Most of the references below are from our life on a hill farm. We moved to a new farm in mid-June 2018, a flatland farm, still in South Canterbury.

Tasks could include - helping on our beautiful piece of paradise in Peel Forest, a run down farm we are bringing back to life. Preserving fruit, making jams. Milking our house cow, Plum, and making butter, yoghurt and cheese. Helping in our ga... more inside

Hello! We are a family of 5, with three little children. We have a sheep, beef and deer farm, an AirBnB, a large house and garden and a very busy life...

We need help with gardening, housekeeping, cooking, cleaning, looking after the kids and any thing else that you would like to do. In exchange for this we would offer a room or two, meals and a chance to experience our amazing rural lifestyle. We are fun, relaxed and happy people. We have pet dogs, and a lamb named Hadlee, so you must be ok with dogs, sheep and above all, children! We eat produce from our own farm and garden as much as possible -so vegetarians are ok, vegans would not work so well! No smokers either please.

We are a busy farming family of six that try to juggle farming, self sufficiency, raising calves, sheep, and feeding our 4 cats, 3 dogs, horse and pony and flock of sheep and raising lots of chickens. (look up Te Moana Farmyard Poultry) When we can we like to go biking, walking, swimming, skiing, travelling, movies or Paddleboarding.

We enjoy hosting couples or friends staying who donít mind getting their hands dirty, work hard and enjoy learning about farming and sharing about themselves and their culture. Our guests are treated as an extension of our family and nothing is asked of our guests that we don't do ourselves. Many hands make light work. Our 4 kids are very energetic so we like helpers that enjoy hanging out with kids. Simply put we have alot of animals and kids!

We ask that helpers work from 8:30 - 2 and we provide full board. In the afternoons helpers are free to explore, relAx, read or be part of whatever we are doing as a family.

We live near the beach,... more inside
