Hi we are a family of four, two little children aged 1 and 3. We have chickens, ducks, 2 goats and 2 cats and heaps of garden and a small native nursery. We are easy going open mined people who love to live of the land as much as possible. We live 30 mins out of town, in a previous mental hospital, we are close to some amazing beaches and scenic sights and lovely walks. We're big on gardening and landscaping and native regeneration.

Help in the house
We can offer a great knowledge of local area and history as well as knowledge on native flora and fauna especially of trees. harvesting and sourcing wild foods. We are currently learning to better our te reo Maori and always at improving our garden.
We would like someone who is good with kids, this is important to us. mainly gardening and landscaping, chopping wood and digging would be some great assets. Bit if you can use a vacuum cleaner and pick up kids toys and play with kids that's excellent!
English, some maori
Double bed in a smallish room. All to yourself but in a pretty busy house with the little kids around. Cooked dinner is always served around 6 and lunch is cooked often too. We mostly only eat wild caught meat and free range eggs and dairy. Lots of healthy hearty food and veges from our garden. We can cater to your diet though
There is so much nature in the local area to see. Evenings are pretty quiet at our house we have the fire going and keep warm, but during the day we are mostly outside doing things and entertaining the kids.
