    Experiencing life on a New Zealand farm will be of interest to travellers, and being away from large cities and in a more rural environment.

    We require a couple to help with winter pruning/maintenance of our garden for 2 to 3 days.

    We are offering accommodation, basic breakfast (cereal/toast) and dinner in exchange for 3 hours of work a day. You have to provide your own lunch and snacks.

    Accommodation

    The accommodation is in our home - bedroom has a king bed and tv. Shared bathroom facilities. Wifi is very limited sorry as its dodgy rural internet.
    We also provide you with basic breakfast provisions (cereal & toast) plus dinner at night. You have to supply your own lunch and snacks.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We also run a Farmstay at our property, so we often have overseas guests and enjoy meeting people from other parts of the world. We are only looking for people for short stays, preferably 2 to 3 days during June or July.
    We would love a couple who are quiet and respectful, and non-smokers essential. You will also need your own transport, especially if you want to sightsee around Oamaru. Our place is definitely not a party place. If you like a simple lifestyle, the countryside and animals, then our place will suit you.
