Gillie and I are lucky to live in a lovely architectural homestead within a larger farm.
It is in the foothills leading up to the Southern Alps with many exotic and some native trees.

The homestead is surrounded by many quite large trees (which require some managing for you to help with) and features a tennis court and swimming pool.

There is separate accommodation within the house with ensuite bathroom.
Walks on the farm (270 hectares) are available on request.
Darfield with most shops and service requirements is about 10 minutes drive away, and Christchurch is an easy drive of approximately 3/4 of an hour.

We are looking for some helpers now for some work in the garden, general house chores and being around whilst the kids are on school holidays (12 & 13 years).

We live on a lifestyle block which borders the Makerikeri stream. It's a peaceful spot and always something to do! We have two children who are primary school age and really good fun kids.

We have horses, and chickens and other livestock from time to time and we try and grow lots of vegetables. Accommodation is either in our house or in a self-contained cottage (we sometimes have an intern in the cottage).

Work is varied depending on what projects we have happening at the time; gardening, firewood, helping with the kids and work with the animals. If you are into horses we have one horse and those confident riders may like to ride!

We are an outdoors family and have a tourism business running hiking trips around NZ. When spare time allows we love to get into the hills.
