  • Description


    We are a couple with a working farm with sheep, cattle and horses.dogs, cats and chickens, We like to eat our own home grown food, from vegetables , fruit and meat as much as possible.

    With the sea a few kilometres away, and lovely views from all over the farm and home.

    There is wildlife up in forest and a awesome place to hike.

    MUST have own transport, as we are rural and coastal. so you need to get around, visit some awesome sights and our four beaches. Can not cater for vegetarians etc.

    Looking for mature experienced people, to assist with chores, from house to farm. Must be physically fit and don't mind getting hands dirty.

    We enjoy meeting people with a sense of humor, learning about their cultures, and sharing our lifestyle. . Your English must be good. to enjoy fluent conversation.

    We look forward to meeting you.
