  • Description


    We are a couple with a working sheep and cattle farm, with a horse, dogs, cats and chickens, We like to eat our own home grown food, from vegetables , fruit and meat as much as possible. We have seasonal variety of fruit trees. Large back yard.

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

    There is wildlife up in forest and a awesome place to hike.
    Best to have own transport, (but contact us anyway,) as we are rural and coastal. so you need to get around, visit some awesome sights and our four beaches.
    If you are keen to enjoy some time on a farm and love animals .
    Must be physically fit and don't mind getting hands dirty.
    Sorry Can not cater for vegetarians, vegans etc:

    We enjoy meeting people with a sense of humor, learning about their cultures, and sharing our lifestyle. .

    We look forward to meeting you.
