We are situated in the picturesque Pohangina Valley on a 10 acres lifestyle block. This is about 25 kms (25 mins) from Palmerston North. We can arrange for you to be picked up from Palmerston North if you don't have your own transport.

Our home is next to a river which is great for swimming and fishing. Great place to be in summer. We are also close to several walks but you will need transport to get to them.

We mostly have a furry family consisting of 2 dogs (inside), 4 cats, 1 goat, sheep, cows, Sophie the calf, chickens and ducks.

You must like animals, as most of ours are pets and love attention. The dogs and cats are allowed inside and will sit in the couch.

There is a variety of things that we need help with, gardening, painting, firewood and general chores around the property. Included in this would be caring for the animals. Sophie the calf loves to be brushed as does Lulu the goat.

Helpers need to have some get up and go and be able to work alone. We... more inside

We are a family of four (two small children 6 and 4) and we live on a lifestyle block in the beautiful Wairarapa. We like good food and fresh air. At the end of the road is an entrance to the Tararua Forest park for some great tramping, walking, mountain biking and a cool swing bridge across the river where there is great swimming. On our block we have a small herd of cattle and flock of sheep.
We are in the process of landscaping, developing an orchard, expanding our vegetable garden, and maintaining existing gardens.
We have a separate guest room with ensuite (shown in the photos). The accommodation best suits a couple. We are looking for guests to help with general farm routines (feeding out to cattle, stacking wood) and gardening (for an average of 4 hours per day) in exchange for food and accommodation.
We are 15 mins drive from Greytown and Carterton.
Non-smokers only please.
Please let us know if you have any special food requirements or allergies which might need to be... more inside

Hello

We are a married couple in our mid-thirties, recently had our first child Jed. We are looking for general help over the summer on the farm from help with the animals, gardening plus many other tasks. We are happy to provid jobs that suit you and your skills

We have 300 Sheep and 220 Cattle, plus the pets!


We have had 3 Helpx experiences and all have been very enjoyable.

We would like a friendly individual or couple with a good sense of humor, practical skills and common sense. The ability to prepare a meal, if required, would be great.

We are aware of the traveling experience and don`t work our helpers hard or unfairly. We leave it up to yourselves to manage hours and a routine. We really look after those with a good work ethic.

You must be fond of animals! We have a lovely river nearby (Pohangina), the Ruahine Forest Park plus many activities not too far away. Mt Ruapehu, for snow sports, is approximately 2hrs drive.

Hi there!!
We have a small life style property in the sunny sunny Sth Wairarapa consisting of paddocks, gardens, fruit trees, and lawns etc...
The living spaces are very tranquil - spacious gardens and pool area - can be quite a bit to maintain sometimes.
There are a few animals here as well as many on surrounding farms.
The property has two dwellings, as well as an art studio, plus sheds and other farm buildings.
Help is always going to be very appreciated with the maintenance as well as the ongoing creation and construction of the garden areas etc.

The Wairarapa is situated just an hour north of Central Wellington and we are located 15 minutes from the wine region centre of Martinborough where some of NZ`s great wines are produced
There are many cafes, restaurants and vineyards
The property location is quiet and peaceful, located amongst farmland on the river with its own private swimming spots.
Generally the area is mostly farming and grape growing, the climate is hot... more inside

My place is on the Kapiti coast about five kilometres north of the village of Waikanae.. The property is some three and a half acres in extent planted with mainly native trees. The front boundary is on Peka Peka Beach looking out to Kapiti Island. The houses at Peka Peka have to be set back from the shore so the beach has a remote feel and is a good place for walks, swimming, gathering shellfish or just sitting contemplating.

My wife has been in permanent care since early this year and I am living here on my own. I am not suited, either by training or temperament for cooking duties so I am looking for visitors who can prepare evening meals for which I will provide ingredients. Maintenance of the outdoors has has been neglected in recent times and outdoor tasks would include clearing overgrown areas, removing some flax bushes and a a variety other outdoor jobs.

Helpers would stay in a self contained cottage which was erected in the 1980's and has its own kitchen and... more inside

Small working sheep and beef farm however it depends on the time of year as to what any helpers would be asked to help with. It could simply be housework (washing windows, cooking etc), gardening (very large, very overgrown garden) or with general farm duties.
Own transport would be advantageous as we're out in the country and would prefer 3-5 day stay. Hours of work would be approx 4 per day.

Hi
Because life gets in the way we sometimes find we need a little help on our lifestyle block.
We would be looking for short term stays, people that would be able to help with chores around the paddocks eg weed control, moving cattle. It would be advantageous if they were able to help with gardening & general housekeeping duties.
As well as the two of us we have four cattle, a dog, a cat & 6 hens. The property is a contemporary home (with amazing views) and only 10 mins by car to the centre of Palmerston North.
A vehicle for personal use would be necessary.
Accommodation is provided within the house.
Please feel free to ask any questions.

Hi,

We have a lovely modern beach-side house with open fire to share in the spirit of the HelpX community.

From May 20th there is one room (with en-suite) available for a short/medium stay in return for help with cooking, housework, gardening (weather dependent) and dog-walking tasks. All food is vegan/vegetarian.

The two beautiful (but energetic dogs) will always be willing to play.


Your host,
Suz
