This is an alpaca farm under development (started in May 2013). The property is 10 acres in size, with a growing number of alpacas, weaner calves, chickens, pony plus domestic animals. The fruit tree orchard and veg garden are both underway, and we have a family-focused lifestyle (children aged 16 and 10yrs) with homemade food. In our family, we speak English, French and German.

Help around the house
We are a multi-cultural family with several active languages, and our guests always enjoy the experience within our home.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We need help to feed our animals daily and supervise my daughter after school, driving her to activities and providing occasional entertainment. Alongside general domestic tasks, there's some outdoor chores available (when the weather allows) to clear overgrown areas, remove thistles, trim hedges and maintain animal paddocks (we use natural farming methods, without sprays).
Private bedroom within the family home. Food and lodging are provided as part of the cultural exchange.
Bombay is a small village located in South Auckland, just 4km from the SH1 motorway (which leads to the airport). The nearest local town is Pukekohe, which has a good selection of shops, plus a train station for access to central Auckland. There are some fantastic sightseeing areas nearby, including the Hunuas (hill ranges for walking), the Coromandel (beaches) and Rainbows End (amusement park).
