    We are Chris and Claire.

    I originally came to Raglan some 10 years ago with the intent of buying a holiday home. A couple of years later I met my partner Claire who has lived in and around Raglan for 30 years. I moved to Raglan permanently in 2014 from Melbourne where I had lived for the previous many years. The following year we decided to build a new home on some land we found near Raglan. We both have families from other relationships and both our kids are grown and living in various parts of NZ and the world. In addition to the main house we have a separate guest house which is rented to a young French guy who works in Raglan.

    Travellers will benefit from a unique experience in one of the most beautiful parts of rural New Zealand. The Waikato is rich in Maori and European history and my partner can impart her knowledge to any interested visitors. In addition she has a deep knowledge and understanding of native flora and fauna and is more than willing to share that knowledge. We would also like to learn more about other countries and cultures from our visitors. We are well travelled and happy to share our experiences from around the world plus help with learning English if required. One of the son's of my partner is currently doing Workaday in Europe and is having enjoyable experiences, so it would also be nice to give back.The location is very beautiful looking out over the upper harbour on a quiet country road about 10 minutes from Raglan.

    We've recently built a house on 2 acres near Raglan and need help clearing part of the land for our orchard. The land was farmland but hasn't been grazed for over 2 years so the job is basically removing weeds from an area of about 1000 square metres so that we can plant trees and sow orchard friendly ground cover.

    We've also planted several hundred natives and are in the process of mulching around them so might need a bit of help with that as well.
