  • Description

    Description

    We have an 18 acre lifestyle block just steps away from the Tuki Tuki river. We are a family of 5 people (1 traveling and 2 away at Uni), 2 horses, 4 sheep, 2 dogs and 2 goats!

    We run a working pottery and divide our time with looking after the animals and the demands of a lifestyle block.

    Help

    There is always a project/jobs on the go, so you might be painting one day or doing some handyman work another day. The work is so varied, from feeding the animals, maintaining the orchard and vegetable garden, collecting wood, general up keeping of the property. Occasional help with the homestay and main house is always appreciated. Also help with preparation of meals and clearing up after.
