We are looking for 2 helpers (a boy and a girl or 2 girls who are happy to share a queen bed) to help us with our busy farming period and potentially doing some paid work helping with cleaning our holiday cottages. There might be some gardening to do around our house too.
Farming work involves some heavy lifting, wood chopping, clearing around trees with a grubber, etc...
We would expect help around the house such as minor cleaning/washing, help at meal times and sharing the cooking some days.
In exchange for your help you will have your room with a seaview and good food with meat and some veggies from the farm, also on your free time our coastal farm to explore. The ideal workawayers would have to be nature lovers, keen explorers, and keen helpers, who don't mind remote areas. If you have your own vehicle that is a plus too, minimum stay of 2 weeks please. We are a happy little family of 3 ( we have a 4 year old girl named Isabella) and we live next door to the grandparents who are also lovely people to have around.
Ps.: Please bear with us as we can't always reply promptly. We will try and respond to everyone!
We are Zander and Andrea. I Andrea am from Brazil and Zander (my husband) from New Zealand and we live on Zander's family farm. We met in Australia while working in an island resort and since then have traveled to Asia, South America and Europe.
The farm is located on the west coast of Golden Bay, in a unique and remote location 3 hours drive from Nelson and 1 hour drive from Collingwood, the last 40 minutes is on a gravel road.
The farm is 1000 acres with 4 kms of coastal frontage. There are endless opportunities for walking and exploring with stunning views, beaches, caves, coves and rock formations. Swimming and fishing in summer is our favorite activities. In winter we enjoy evening walks to the knob to watch the sun setting into the sea.
Zander's parents Ken & Sandra farm the land with sheep and cattle.

As we have done our own help exchange experience while traveling through Europe we are aware how important it is to welcome people into our homes. We enjoy sharing our mixed kiwi brazilian culture and the special place that this is.

We manage a tourism operation on a unique coastal environment on the west coast of Golden Bay, New Zealand.
The kind of help we require from our helpers are within the family household:
- Fire wood chopping
- House duties (which can involve some cleaning)
- Farm activities
- Help with cooking/preparing meals
- Some help watching, playing or reading a book to our daughter
Either your own room with double bed or a private sleepout with a great sea view.
It is easier if you have your own vehicle so you can be free on your days off to explore the region. However if you don't have your own vehicle we can arrange for you to come out our way on the mail van on certain days of the week.
