07/07/2019:
We will be heading into our busiest time of the year at the beginning of August! That is LAMBING! We would love to host a volunteer to help me with feeding lambs. There will most likely also be a little bit of helping out with chores around the house, feeding the chickens etc. We are looking for someone who is capable, reliable, can use initiative, work independently when required and most of all fun!

We have a 600 acre farm of flat to rolling contour. We farm sheep and sometimes run a few cattle too. We also grow our own winter feed crops and some cereal crops too. We recently built our family home and now have a guest room, with a queen sized bed, ready for a WOOFER to move in. We have WIFI and a spare car.

We have just got through out busiest time on the farm - Lambing. This means it is time for weighing lambs to get them away on the truck We are looking for a female/or a couple to come and help us out. Jobs will include working in the yards, grubbing out weeds... more inside

Great food and friendly hosts in the heart of the Southern Alps. In fact we are even on the Te Araroa Trail yet are less than 2 hours from Christchurch, Greymouth or Hokitika. Public transport via East West Shuttle operates 7 days a week from Christchurch to Greymouth return each day.

Geoff and Renee and our wee dog Maggie welcome you to share their home in the village of Arthur's Pass surrounded by the forest and peaks of Arthur's Pass National Park. Arthur's Pass is a good location for walking, mountaineering, skiing, snowboarding and enjoying nature. Our homestay website is shown above.

Amongst other things, we bake our own bread, chocolate puddings and make our own pizza.
There will be plenty of time for walks and adventures in Arthur's Pass National Park.

Geoff is an environmental campaigner currently works as a strategic advisor to Forest & Bird (a New Zealand NGO) and has also been involved in Search and Rescue. Renee has a background in the Union movement and Soci... more inside

Preferably we could take someone in for these tasks for a Friday to Monday inclusive working 4 hours per day. Need someone straight away.

Hi, we are a couple in our late 60's (both retired), who are looking for some help on our small property. You would be asked for 4-5hrs help per day in return for accommodation and all meals. Work will include gardening, fencing, painting, carpentry/building. We just need help getting our small property into reasonable working order. We live 7km south of Cheviot in Domett, close to the popular surf beach at Gore Bay, also we are close to Mt Lyford ski field and 77km south of the beautiful township of Kaikoura. If you wish to be totally independant, you will need your own transport, although I usually go into Christchurch once a week. We have WIFI available, and limited mobile coverage. Accommodation is a single bedroom with twin beds and shared bathroom. You must like animals (especially dogs) as much as we do, as we own 8 dogs, 8 sheep, 4 cockatiels and 5 quail! We envisage your stay would be up to approx. 2weeks in duration, but could be a little longer if work is available. NO sm... more inside

***We have Helpers staying for July so Cottage will be available again from August***

We have really enjoyed the many HelpX experiences we have had getting to know people from other parts of the world. We are a friendly and relaxed family who love having visitors so please read the reviews below from some who have stayed with us.

We can offer accommodation in your own cottage for 2 hours work per day. So you would cook your own meals. We are happy to be flexible such as combining the hours of work in a day to have days off. Given the distance to Rangiora/Christchurh it would suit someone with a car but happy to discuss as we have had a number of helpers stay without a vehicle.

We are looking for general help around the property such as gardening, maintenance, painting, firewood, cleaning etc. It will suit single or couple or a family, non-smokers.

Our property was previously an orchard but is now a small lifestyle block with main house and a separate 1 bedroom self ... more inside
