We are looking for a very special helper to help us with our children during October.

We have two energetic children, 4 and 7. We need someone to help them get ready for school, drop them off to school and preschool and pick them up after school and take them to their after school activities, three days a week. The rest of the week is your own to explore our beautiful region.

Its not difficult work, but you must be responsible, reliable and love children. Cooking skills and a working knowledge of My Little Pony and Minecraft will be an advantage. You must have good english, a full drivers licence and be confident driving on the left hand side of the road.

You'll need to be able to commit to staying with us for 3 or 4 week over the month of October.

We have just moved to a beautiful 9.5 acre block and are active cleaning everything up, growing fruit (orchard is already established), and veges in a small greenhouse.

We are a family of two adults, two cats and two dogs (all pets are fed raw), and are enjoying spending time at the land. We could use some help with collecting firewood (which is spread all over the place), weeding, using ride-on lawn mower and weed eater, planting and re-planting, repairing of buildings and sheds, mulching, sometimes looking after our dogs - depending on your preferences.

We have a separate sleep out for one person to stay, which contains toilet and shower as well. Internet is available.
Due to hyper sensitivities we are smoke and perfume free.

We are living right at the Golf Course. This is just 5 minutes away from Otaki town, and 5 minutes to the beach, with a car. A car is available for short trips, but if you plan to do longer excursions in the area, you would need your own vehicle or ... more inside

Hello! Lambing and Calving Help!

We are a married couple in our mid-thirties. Anna is expecting our first child in September so we are looking for extra help over lambing and calving to ease the workload.

Jobs would include feeding and caring for orphan lambs, and possibly calves. Assisting with other lambing duties such as bringing ewes back to the shed in the quad bike trailer. Other jobs would involve feeding farm animals such as our free-range pigs and piglets, chickens, and cows etc. For a couple, there are also other tasks available such as in the flower and vegetable garden, possibly some small interior painting jobs, among other things. We have 300 Sheep and 80 Cattle, plus the pets!


We have had 2 Helpx experiences and both have been very enjoyable. We would be needing someone(s) from mid July until the end of August with the option of staying on until mid to late September.

We would like a friendly individual or couple with a good sense of h... more inside

Hi

Winter is nearly over and it's time to prepare the vegetable gardens for spring planting. The lambs are now playing in the field. Compost boxes to empty and gardens to mulch for the summer. So we would welcome helpers to assist with this work.

We are a semi-retired couple living close to Greytown in the Wairarapa. We have a modern house (double glazing, solar water heating, wood fires) on 2.2 hectares. We have our own hens and the neighbours’ sheep, and a large vegetable garden and orchard. We are NOT vegetarian or organic though we try to be conservationists. We have a pizza oven which we enjoy lighting up for visitors, and a spa pool.

We are halfway between Woodside railway station (one hour from Wellington) and Greytown – walking distance into the town. We can collect you from the train or bus in Greytown if you do not have your own transport.

We have a variety of accommodation to offer, in the main house or, if preferred, in a self-contained separate bui... more inside
