Help at a farm near Christchurch, NZ



 Min stay requested: No minimum



  • Description


    We are a large flat land farm 30mins North of Christchurch, in Nth Canterbury. We have three dairy farms and a run off support block run by our sons. We are semi retired living in The Homestead with a large garden and we grow our own fruits and vegetables which we cook with everyday. We are looking for help in our garden, house, maintenance, computer and cooking. More than happy to put your skills to use which best suit.

    In return, you can make yourself at home! We can provide comfortable accomodation and food supplies for the length of time you are here. Feel free to make use of our facilities such as pool, hot tub etc and if the farm isn't too busy, we would be happy to show you around.
