Farm is at Blackmount RD 2, Otautau 9682, Rapid Number 2491 on the Blackmount/Redcliffs Road.
Sometimes help is required at farm for general farmwork. There is no landline, although there is limited cellphone or internet connection at the farmhouse but there is phone access for emergencies at the manager's house.

Sometimes a person is required for outside section work at the Te Anau home and odd inside work.

Prefer people who don't have dietary restrictions (e.g. vegan or vegetarian) and who are over 25 years approx. Expectation is that 4 hours work per day (flexibility on blocking work to have freedays) is completed in exchange for accommodation and meals.
Previous helpers have made us realise that if they have their own transport it makes it easier to go sightseeing etc on their time off. It is not essential but provides more freedom to explore our wonderful scenery.

My name is Craig. I'm a children's author and songwriter. I have a young daughter .

My holiday home is located 70km from the nearest shops {Manapori and Te Anau} in the far south western corner of the South Island. It's only a few km from fiordland national park and lake Monowai. 2 hours and 15 mins drive from Queenstown heading south west. My log cabin has 3 bedrooms, and lots of land. Because it's my holiday home I don't get to look after the land as much as I would like so I need some help to clear the land.

I am willing to supply accommodation (your own room) in the 3 bedroomed log cabin, 3 meals a day and all the local advice for walks etc in your down time in exchange for 4 hours of work per person per day.

Because of it's proximity to Fiordland national park some of the best and secluded walks and treks are located just a few km away. Work is predominately "on the land" clearing weeds and small bush.Planting native trees and Flax. Lawn mowing,. Things of this natur... more inside
