  • Descripción


    We are a large farm in the mountains of Canterbury,close to Mt Hutt ski area and the Rakaia River. We farm sheep and cattle.
    The work we would like help with is based around the homestead and includes gardening, planting trees and general maintenance work. It is hard physical work.
    We also have a project creating a recreational and conservation area in the nearby Rakaia Gorge. This also involves hard physical work and includes track creation, weed control
    and planting.
    This is a busy property with a lot going on and people passing through.
    We are a 20 minutes drive from the nearest shop so best to have own transportation if staying for over a week.
    The helping times can be flexible.
    There is plenty to do if you like the outdoors. Hiking, biking, skiing ,swimming and horse riding if you are an experienced rider.
    We are a conservation minded family aiming to integrate farming with sustainability. Not an easy task.
