Area: CanterburyGreeting We are two professional adults who work full time and love our animals. Our 6 acre property has chickens, alpacas, dogs and one blind kuni kuni pig, along with a mini guide pig. We are currently making over the property and establishing an eco friendly environment for ourselves and our animals. We aim to become as self sufficent as possible and enjoy every minute of every day! Come and visit our little slice of farm paradise only minutes from the city.You need to be pretty self-sufficent, love animals and be confident to have a go. Currently we have a large vege garden which need prep for the new plants to go in. We like it when you cook and there is always miles of eggs! Work includes painting, weeding, animal feeding and care. We now have 28 newly laying hens that demand a cuddle and adore attention. We have yet to get the alpacas halti trained. We have miles of spare clothes and gumboots, so not to worry about those things. Please feel most welcome to email at any time. It can be a few days as I email usually from work., Cheers and thanks, Nicky
Area: QuebecWe are a family with two children, 4 cats and 1 dog. We live in a rural area near farms and crop fields. A village with 3000 inhabitants is about 5km from our home. The village is at a distance of 35 km south of Quebec City. The house is a split levels and is very sunny. Our philosophy includes concern for the environment and respect for nature. We cultivate and maintain without pesticides or herbicides, and we are in constant contact with the surrounding nature (wild fauna and flora). We work throughout the year, except during the summer when many outdoor tasks mobilize the majority of our time. The amount of work required exceeds our current capacity and we need help with grounds maintenance, flower beds, a small wood in the courtyard, an organic vegetables garden and maintenance or renovation of buildings.

Area: Queensland, Stanthorpe ( Granite Belt )My Wife and I have a samll farm (166 acreas ) with Cattle, Alpaca, Chickens, Ducks and Quail. We are fairly self sufficient with producing most of our own meat, fruit and vegetables during the season and then using various preserving techniques to supply ourselves during the colder months. Being in a Wine district there are many wineries and resturants you can visit during your stay. We love to cook and love to learn from other like minded people.
