  • Description


    We have a small (10 hectares) lifestyle block/farm 15 minutes away from Motueka, and the Abel Tasman National Park, with a lot of free range chickens, a few geese and ducks. We produce and sell free range eggs.

    We are looking for help over the coming months and wondering if there is anyone out there who might like to stay for a longer period, i.e. 1-2 months. This would probably suit travellers interested in seeing more of the Tasman region ( at the top of the South Island ) and the Abel Tasman / Kahurangi National Parks. Or maybe you are looking for somewhere quiet to park your house bus or campervan in exchange for a few hours work each morning. Hours can be flexible to suit your and our requirements. Enquiries for shorter stays are also welcome.

    The property is also home to two Labrador dogs, two cats, two anti social llamas, one elderly horse and two miniature horses.

    The daily routine includes chicken feeding, egg collecting, egg cleaning, egg sorting and packaging by size ready to sell.

    We also have large gardens that needs to be kept under control!

    Help with all of the above would be great and there is always something to be done, either inside the house or out, cleaning and maintenance wise or some project in progress to be completed.

    Accommodation would be in our guest cottage when available (not so much during summer, Dec-March) or well equipped caravans (has shower, loo and heater). Food and/or meals are provided in return for 4-5 hours work. We try to have lunch altogether (this doesn't always happen if I'm at work!) and then let people do their own thing in the evening. Provisions or cash to buy your own food for your evening meals and breakfast will be provided.

    Self starters who are able to work unsupervised and have a good sense of humour (who won't mind getting their hands dirty!) preferred. Own transport is a bonus (but not compulsory) as we are 2.5km away from the main road and not on a bus route. A vehicle may be available however some T's & C's would apply.

    Workawayers who stay with us are only 15 minutes away from the Abel Tasman National Park and the sandy beaches of Kaiteriteri and Marahau. Work is usually completed in the morning and your afternoons are free to spend as you please. However work times can be flexible, ie if you would like to take a whole day away to explore you can make up the hours another day in the afternoon.
    During your stay you will learn about free range egg farming and free range chickens. Depending on when you stay the ages of the chickens can range from just one day old to around 2-3 years of age.

    Hi we need lots of help around our property. Projects vary depending on the season and how busy we are. The gardens always need work and our free range eggs need to be collected daily plus the chickens need to be fed. There is usually some maintenance work or cleaning to be done on or in the chicken houses; sheds and fences to be tidied up or wood to chop and split for the winter - a couple of strong people can always be useful around the place! Help is about four hours a day in return for food and accommodation. Let us know how you can help.

    We are a 15 minute drive from the Abel Tasman National Park, Motueka and Kaiteriteri beach. We are flexible with hours so if you have your own transport ( or are able to use ours ) you could go over to Golden Bay for the day, maybe to Farewell Spit.
