Our property is an 11 acre property 500 metres from the foothills of Mt Taranaki, elevated at 420m above sea level. There are spectacular views of the Taranaki coastline and beyond. We practice organic and permaculture principles and include beef stock, milking cow, ducks, free-range chickens and four dogs.

Help we need is for:
Chicken coop clean, berry house plant maintenance and planting, mulching, vegetable garden construction, Pig Hut build, landscape and windbreak planting, fruit trees to move, orchard pruning and inside jobs would include sorting and cleaning in the workshop. Daily chores may include moving stock, milking, feeding out and collecting eggs.

Machinery mechanical knowledge would be an advantage as we have a ride-on lawnmower that requires an overhaul.

Own vehicle a bonus also as we don`t often leave the property.

As our house is new, it is extremely warm thanks to being fully insulated and the massive wood burner, electric blanket ... more inside

We are a late fifties couple, with one dog 8 chooks and 7 sheep, living on 3 acres of peaceful country just 6km from central New Plymouth.

Current, planned projects include a erecting a glasshouse, landscaping, building vegetable gardens, painting, fencing, and of course the never ending weeding along with a lot of other fun activities that happen each day in running a small farmlet.

Our understanding of HelpX is 4 hours work per person per day, for three meals and a bed. We understand there are other arrangements, but we would be happy with the above, or a variation of it.

We have wireless internet; mobile coverage is probably about 97%; no land line.
We do have a TV set up to use.

The accommodation is a either a separate 2 bedroom apartment, with mountain views, in the main house or a small stand alone cabin.

Regarding dietary needs,one of us is gluten free so can cater for special requirements.
We are a non smoking house hold.

New Plymouth is a beautiful ... more inside

Welcome to New Zealand.

We would love you to join us on a Help X experience - we have hosted so many people over the past 7 years and have loved meeting all the wonderful people from all over the world.

Our family is social, slightly crazy professional kiwis, with the two boys (8 & 12 years), and a 3 year old Samoyed dog named Chilli. We are both University Graduates and working full time. My husband works as a Senior Manager in Banking and I am self employed working from home which sees me travel away from home.

An exchange at our place will provide your own large room with a very comfortable queen sized bed away from the main house, access to wifi, and real kiwi family experiences. We ask for 4 hours work per day, with tasks involving household chores, child minding, gardening, or whatever we may have going on at the time. The work will not be difficult and will be chores that we normally do ourselves.

The kids are adorable, cheeky, funny, challenging, hilarious, energ... more inside

This is a fourth generation ex dairy farm, now run as an innovative beef and bull finishing farm.
The farm is 270 hectares, with 92 hectares of native bush.
Our son is the manager and his wife is a vet. We are also on farm.
Our small country town is 5 minutes and the beach,10 minutes drive away. There is a large picturesque town 30 mins away with good shopping, Saturday market etc
We are one and a half hours from Mt Taranaki and two and a half from Mt Ruapehu.
We love animals and have three Labrador dogs, one cat , two pigs and pet cows which we rear calves on in spring.
There is a small, warm, three BR house available on farm with a wood burning fire.
We have had many overseas workers here, whom we enjoy as we all like to travel.
The work is varied- stock work, general farm duties, some gardening and maintenance.
