I generate some of my own power with solar electric and solar hot water, make muesli, laundry detergent, soap, jams, preserves, seed saving, grow beef and vegetables, cook on a wood burning stove in winter and keep bees for honey. While I do these things I don't do them every day as farms are seasonal. I have a variety of animals and general jobs that are ongoing and various.
Your separate accommodation is in a tiny house which has a private kitchen, bathroom, lounge and mezzanine bedroom plus an outside deck area. There is one big bed in the mezzanine bedroom and a sofa bed in the lounge which sleeps 2. I provide your food but you will need to do your own cooking.
I also teach beekeeping, sustainability and permaculture courses.
There is about an acre of pyo (u pick) blueberries though Work aways will not be helping in any business activities, and that the produce they help with is not sold to the public. September, October and November is the time to prepare (weed) the house vegetable gardens for planting and I am also establishing a small permaculture food forest.
This is a small farm but I generate some of my income from it so is an example of how to do that if you are interested. Fred and Wilma are the dogs and they love helpers and are super friendly.
Vegetarians welcome and smoking is ok outside.
If I am collecting you from Silverstream train station I will need to collect you from there at 4pm preferably on a Sunday.
This is an organic farm so principles of composting, eating seasonal food, reduce, reuse and recycle are things that are done on a daily basis.
Cell phone reception is vodafone and spark not 2 degrees and we have Starlink internet.
I enjoy a good laugh but appreciate my privacy in the evenings. Look forward to hearing from you soon, cheers Carolann

Because I have been living an environmentally friendly lifestyle for so long it is normal for me so I don't always think to point out why I do certain things so please feel free to ask a lot of questions. Look around you and observe. This is a busy little place with a lot going on behind the scenes.
I have a variety of animals and general farm chores that are on going and varied. Currently the house vegetable garden needs preparation for planting and I am establishing a small permaculture food forest.
Accommodation is in a tiny house especially created for workaways and is a shared space. I am not vegetarian but vegetarians are welcome with appropriate food supplied. Smokers welcome if you smoke outside. There is space for campervan parking.

As there is no public transport to the farm I can collect you from Silverstream Railway Station. This is on the Upper Hutt Railway Line & about 40 min out of Wellington Central. I can meet you outside the New World Supermarket close to the train station.

The tasks were very nice and "mindfulness", the dogs are very friendly and lovely, the area is so peaceful.. Still it's very close to Wellington so it's possible to reach the city during your day off :D

Carolann is a role model for sustainable living. She walks the talk
This lady is epic!
She's a one woman working machine and I'm full of admiration for everything she does. Her farm is a little slice of heaven, I stayed 3 weeks and I loved every moment that I spent there.
The workers cottage is adorable and well maintained. Carolann is incredibly generous with the food
The facilities at the cottage are basic but comfortable and exactly what we expected -
It is just nice to spend some quality time with others workaway ; Carolann is extremely funny but an independent person so you won't see her too much sadly. But she'll tell you
Stayed there a week in December, working
