We are an hospitable Kiwi couple in our 70's. We live on a beautiful traditional New Zealand sheep farm nestled in the foothills of the Southern Alps on the edge of the Canterbury plains. We have a lovely large garden around our our home overlooking a large lake laden with exotic ducks. We live only five minutes from the township of Oxford which has multiple cafes and gift and craft shops. We require one or two helpers for up to a week for mainly gardening work. We have 2 bikes available and you could bike into the Oxford village in 20 minutes. This a great area to explore with lovely walking tracks and Ashley Gorge very close. We have our own swimming pool you would be welcome to use, and a boat for rowing on the lake.
We cook great healthy meals with lots of vegetables, fresh from our garden.

We have a lovely room available and we need a fit couple to help with a general property tidy up and some landscape gardening projects.

We have a 25 acre lifestyle block in a gorgeous area in North Canterbury called Pyramid Valley. We are a husband and wife with a 6 year old son. We have 3 large friendly dogs (2 x curly coat retrievers and 1 x black and tan coonhound) and a cat. We mainly graze sheep. Helpers must like dogs.

Our home is a 3 bedroom homestead with an external sleepout plus a pool.

The property has 3 acres of old established gardens and the rest of the property is the original homestead with cattle yards, sheep yards, woolshed and maintenance sheds, ponds, paddocks etc.

We offer 4 hours "work" per day in exchange for accommodation (a double bed) and meals. Helpers must also be prepared to pitch in and help at meal times - setting the table, doing the dishes and emptying the dish washer.

We are a relaxed early 50's (but young at heart!!) couple. ... more inside
