  • Description


    Hi there we are sheep & beef farmers and would welcome help from non smoking couples (male/female) ranging from gardening to animal care.
    We farm 5 km from a small town of Cheviot (1.5 hours north of Christchurch & 1 hour south of Kaikoura).
    There are some awesome views to the mountains from our farm. The farm is set in a peaceful location and self contained accommodation is private and separate from the house.
    It is best suited to COUPLES who like privacy but we do try to include you with our family when possible. We supply all basic food and accommodation in return for 4 hours help a day. Any questions please email. Kind Regards Hamish
