My name is Louise and I run an art gallery with a bar and kitchen. We host musical gigs every week & also Qigong classes on a weekly basis.... often catering for special events and parties. There is a garden where we hold outside musical events and over the Summer months there is always plenty to do....
Jobs could include dishes, bar work, barista, gardening, dog walking, chopping firewood, cleaning. The busiest days are Friday nights so working then is a must. Other days can be flexible depending on jobs or events and if you are around the gallery you will be fed. Bonnie does need a lot of attention every day.
My dog Bonnie, and I live just 10 minutes north on a farm which is truly beautiful and very quiet and rural. We enjoy the beauty and tranquility and hope that our visitors will too. We have a spacious caravan with double bed and sitting room space for our visitors. Shower and washing facilities are available in my place which is a converted woolshed.

We have a sheep and beef farm in the Catlins. We are situated on the Catlins estuary and Jacks Bay. Owaka township is only 6kms away. Our family consists of Penny and Peter, our 23 year old daughter Hope. Alvin, the Jack Russell and Blair the cat. If you have allergies this may not be the place for you as the pets are inside. Peter and I sometimes work away from the farm so are always wanting help to catch up on jobs.
We are after help on the farm, and around the house. Work will vary depending on the time of year. At this time of year we need help with feeding stock. Moving portable fences on the farm. Tidying up the garden and house work would also be required at times. We would really be keen to try some international cooking if you are keen. As we are sometimes busy, helping with the evening meal preparation and cleaning up afterwards is a big help. We are current it renovating a sleep out. If you can wallpaper and paint that would be excellent.

Our expectation would be 4... more inside

We are a high country station farming merino sheep and beef on the edge of Lake Benmore. We are isolated. 45 mins from the highway.

It is a wilderness wonderland we like to share It is preferable that you have own transport.

We have had a lifestyle block for the last six years and want to make ourselves semi self sufficient. We are intending to have an Organic garden with composting and worm farm which we have started. We have also started breeding chickens, also bantams. Donald works 45 hours a week and I am unable to do any heavy work due to back surgery. we have a 3 bedroom home with plenty of room. We are looking for people who are interested in gardening and renovations, inside and out. We are in the process of making our fish pond bigger and trying to get on top of the vegetable garden, there is plenty of painting to do and a deck to build off the front of the house. We have two dogs 3 cats, and as I used to work as an Auxiliary Officer for the NZSPCA in Oamaru, most of our animals are rescues. We are very flexible with stays, from a couple of days to a few weeks.The lakes up to mount cook are not far from here, and a lot of camping areas are also close. We are 10/12 Km north of Oamaru 1.1/2 hou... more inside

Greetings
We have a sheep and beef farm with an accommodation business in the beautiful Catlins, with stunning views.
Both Karl and I traveled so we know what it is like to be in a different country!
Needing someone to help plant small trees and put wool around them in the shelterbelts and usual house hold jobs. If you want to come on the farm and move electric fences for sheep and cows, you are most welcome!
You would be part of our family for your stay.
We don't mind if you only want just a couple of days and maximum stay for a week.
Would prefer you to have a car as public transport is non existent and you would want to explore this wonderful area.
Would ask you to work five hours daily and help with dinner. We have one 11yr old at home, one cat, 6 dogs, two horses, pet calves and lambs, 4 pet (kids) goats, and 5000 stock units (sheep and cows) on the farm. Sometimes chaos but always fun.
Cheers Melanie

Please EMAIL if interested. Could possibly be for 2 weeks+ (needs organising in advance). Easiest if you have your own vehicle for sleeping, but this may be negotiable. NB: May also suit right person stuck currently in NZ (with visa) but no job and expensive accommodation costs. If you cannot communicate courteously please do not bother, as 'silence' is deliberately rude & offensive.

I live in small scenic rural settlement and need property maintenance help (mostly: landscaping & gardening. etc.) from time to time. Current Help (May 2020): Create a new vegetable garden, landscaping, odd jobs, concrete work, light building work, fencing (IT website work - maybe an option).

There are always lots of jobs to do.
We have several bedrooms, all have big beds and private bathrooms. WiFi too. We provide and cook all your meals( which often include meat....).
In exchange if you can put in a mornings hard work we would be very grateful.
We are near the coast, north of Dunedin.

I am a retired restaurateur, have travelled extensively and enjoy swapping stories.... and rebuilding old Landrovers. And Julia is an importer and distributor of leather.
