We are a Christian homeschooling family, who run a shop in the small town of Twizel in the beautiful Mackenzie Country.

Life is very full with running the household, land and business, plus we are quite involved in our community.

We have quite a few visitors coming & going, as well as the family - we have more at home in weekends and holidays than during the termtime week.

We have room for one or two Helpxers. You will have your own room in the house. We have broadband internet & WiFi.

We have an adorable labrador dog & a budgie. We have a small vege garden and enjoy many herbs and flowers in pots and baskets :-)

We need someone who loves cooking and would enjoy making the evening meal for us (and definitely not a vegetarian please!) and can do light household duties to help us run the home and keep it tidy (something we really struggle with currently - we need more time!) and clean. Plenty of opportunities to practise English! And we love European boardgames.

If you are keen to help install a gas shower and set up the bathing area on our little hut at Peel Forest, or cut gorse, or help feed calves, or plant a vegetable garden, we would love to host you!

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 moved to a new farm in mid June, a flatland farm, and we can always use help here, either outside with our animals on our own small farm, or in... more inside

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.
The accommodation is in our warm homestead (spare bedroom with queen bed, 2 lounges so can be in own space in evenings) and meals would be with our family so we are looking for someone considerate and reliable wanting to experien... more inside
