  • Description


    Requiring Workers/helpers for the next few months
    No couples please
    If you are fit and capable to work on steep hill country everyday in all weather, there maybe an opportunity to assist with weed eradication in May June n July, and with stock work in October and November

    Our home at Camp Bay in Lyttleton Harbour, Canterbury, was built in the early 1930's and like all older homes has a history and needs some TLC!
    The farm is 750 acres of typical point country on the eastern side of Lyttleton Harbour on Banks Peninsular, we have sheep and cattle with horses and dogs!

    Christchurch is a short ferry and bus ride away or it takes about 40 minutes to drive around the harbour and over the hill!

    There is an extensive garden which we are restoring and an amazing beach less than a minutes walk from the front door.

    Your chores will be varied, out on the farm, maybe in the wool-shed, planting and weeding in the vege garden or plucking weeds in the house garden.
