My partner and I run a 650 cow dairy operation on the outskirts of Greytown in the North Island. We live on the farm with our dog Mac.
We are looking for a helper or a couple that can assist us with calf rearing and jobs around our garden starting from July until August/September. Help needed with farm animals and some lifting so helpers must be willing and able to work physically.

In return for your help, accommodation and food will be provided. Accommodation is a shared house with us and Mac. It is warm and close to Greytown. Only 1.5 hours from the capital, Wellington.

We love travelling and learning about different cultures so would really enjoy hosting someone that is also interested in learning about us and how we operate our dairy farm.

Hi there, I'm Jasper, originally from the Netherlands but ive been in NZ since 2003 , I am a solo father of three kids (7, 9 and 11 year old) and could use a bit of help around the house and with minding my children. Basically the occasional babysitting in the evenings , some basic light household work and perhaps some (small) gardening help and being around when the kids come home after school so I can work a bit longer. You can do your own cooking or eat with us. WiFi available. You will have your own room in our spacious home and we have an incredible area to explore all around us , beach on our doorstep and amazing hills and rural peace surrounding you. I speak English, Dutch and German but kids only speak English. It would help if you have a vehicle as we do live rural. Hoping to host someone caring, friendly and proactive that loves the kiwi lifestyle as much as we do !

Hi, we're a busy family of four, Mum, Dad with two kids 16 and 11. We live about 20mins south of Palmerston North and about one and a half hours drive North of Wellington.
We're in a beautiful rural area with breath taking views, fresh air and loads of room to move.
We have a dog, two cats, chickens and some grazing stock. We've both travelled and love international visitors in our home to broaden our children's cultural experiences and develop their desire to see this beautiful world.
We enjoy cooking, baking, entertaining. We eat most meals from off the farm, vegetable garden and mostly home-made. Our interests as a family are travel, golf, thrift shopping, up cycling, sewing, designing, art, a wide range of sports, movies and heading out to the nearby beach house to relax.
We're offering a Help Exchange for accommodation and all meals for help with jobs around the house and farm. Weekends free and very happy to arrange times that suit everyone.
We have a double room and a si... more inside

Greetings from the beautiful Kapiti Coast, on the west coast of the lower North Island.

I need some help with doing some house renovations. Mostly interior painting, some wallpaper stripping. Outside painting too. Maybe some demolition and re-lining walls depending on abilities. Also lawn weeding. There is so much to be done, you can choose what you would like to help with.

The Beautiful Kapiti coast offers the beach and ocean (beach access just across the road from the house), a beautiful island bird sanctuary, amazing bush walks, with the Tararua ranges offering longer hiking if you’re that way inclined. Wellington City is an hour away by train. 45 mins by car.

I have a lovely sunny backyard to relax in, and a big vege patch with some things to harvest (soon!), and a spa pool in the garden. Laundry facilities available.

Minimum stay 2 nights, maximum one week.
Three hours of work a day in exchange for a comfy bed and bedding, and breakfast foods. If you like to ... more inside

This is a simple bach, 5 min walk to a beautiful beach and stream. There is a kayak, bikes and boogie board for use. A small fridge, small stove, shower and composting toilet. A great viewing platform where you can sit and relax and see the beach.

This place is available only sometimes, as it is our holiday and occasional week long hangout, not our permanent abode. However, you can be here before we arrive or after we leave and we make it overlap where we can. Just enquire and discuss.

Just email me and I let you know if we are there.

We consist of my partner Natalie, myself, and our 4 children, ranging from 4y to 15 y of age, and a dog. Sometimes we take two chickens. Sometimes it's just three of us.


Please check with us via email if you are interested. It's a great stop on your way to Wellington or North from Wellington.

I would ask you to help for 2.5 hr per night you stay,and provide your own food.
Help is largely needed for jobs like weeding, lawnmowing... more inside
