WE ARE LOOKING FOR HELPERs who are competent riders and can assist us with getting our horses fit for hunting and eventing. Comfortable home with pool and tennis court available.

We are a family of 4 - Scottish/Kiwi. I work locally and part-time. We live in a 6 bedroom house, so you can have your own space and bathroom. In exchange we would expect you to get up when the family gets up and partake in tasks which would in general involve the horses, (eg mucking out the paddock, cleaning tack and riding.) and gardening. However other skills such as and cooking are appreciated!

Our interests are varied and with a 15 Year old we are always on the go and would like you to join in as many family activities as possible such as back yard cricket, swimming in the river and a bit of tennis, so if you are more of a couch potato, we may not be right match for you!

When you email us, please tell us what jobs you enjoy and how much riding experience you have. We are particularly in... more inside

Due to a change in my circumstances I have a new house with the section mostly unfinished and undeveloped - it was previously neglected and overgrown with weeds before the house was built.

I need some help with clearing and establishing a garden. Some heavy lifting (bags of compost, stones and bark etc). Some heavy digging to clear out the weeds. I have done much of it myself and I found it to be hard work. (Maybe partly due to my age!)

In particular I also need help with some basic carpentry skills to build edges and garden boxes, and put up a trellis. I have some power tools - drill, small chainsaw etc but I don't have the skill to use them.

The house is new, fully completed and furnished but the section is only partly developed.

Accommodation and meals are provided in exchange for four hours per day help. I can be flexible about how helpers might arrange work/free time

I do not have pets and would prefer helpers that do not smoke or have pets.

I have a twin be... more inside

We are unable to host until after 1 February 2019.

We are a friendly, fit couple who have travelled widely and enjoy meeting people from other countries. It would be a bonus to have assistance of 4 hours a day as our lovely property and house has lots of challenges.

We live only 500 metres off State Highway 1, and only 6 minutes by car from the town of Levin. We are just over an hour north of Wellington, the Capital of New Zealand which is also the transit point to the South Island.

Levin is a town with 20,000 people and is the agricultural centre for the region. The North Island buses stop there both Intercity and Nakedbus, and the commuter trains. We will arrange to pick people up and drop off Helpxers if required. There are various things to do in our area including going for tramps in the hills, going to the beaches and lakes and rivers, and exploring the lovely farms and seeing how green New Zealand is. There is lots of local Maori history. We like this area we... more inside

Hi,
We have a lovely 922ha farm, which includes some native bush (13ha is one block). We run 3600 sheep and 370 cattle. We need some help gardening, farming, fencing, firewood, housework, cooking and some baby sitting etc - there will be a variety of work. We are a young friendly farming couple with a 20month old toddler (who sleeps all night). We have lots of animals, a horse to ride if you like - only if you are a confident rider, lots of nice places to walk/run. We will give you lots of opportunity to come out with us and shift our sheep and cattle on the hills. We have a newly renovated home for you to stay with us. We are not cert organic but try to farm as organically as possible. We use biological systems on our farm to try and create a healthy farm, for our animals and us. We are not vegetarians. We would like someone to come anytime now until the April when we have our second baby due. We can pick people up from Masterton and we are only about 1hour and 45min - 2hours fro... more inside

Lifestyle property farming the gorgeous valais Blacknose sheep. . Also 3 horses and poultry. Early 20th Century renovated villa with two guest rooms. Friendly dog and wary farm cats. Handy to train going to Wellington or Masterton and half hour walk to Featherston itself. Helpers will not be worked too hard - just odd jobs that might be things like handing me some gear while trimming sheep feet, or being the "huntaway" dog at the rear of mobs that need moving. Otherwise tidying, light gardening, lawn-mowing. And if you are a very good horse rider then you can spend your work hours on horseback!
Your own transport preferred. Food supplied but best you cook your own as I am always outside!

We moved to this lovely country paradise 5 years ago from the city. It was time to have a new adventure. We now have a large, but struggling vege garden, 2 mum goats and 4 gorgeous babies, 7 cheeky chickens, a goose and a horse. We also have 3 very friendly dogs who love country living and 2 kittens. We would love to have some help with developing the place. Gardening, fencing and general handyperson work is what we are looking for. You would have your own room - or share if there are two of you, and all meals. We'd like you to feel like you are part of the family. If you'd like to learn to milk a goat by hand and make cheese I am happy to teach you if the season is right.
