We manage a large coastal sheep and beef farm on the beautiful coromandel peninsula located 15 minutes south of Whangamata.
the farm its self has many hidden gems like private beaches (great fishing, swimming and sunbathing) and great coastal out looks to lose yourself in. The Coromandel its self is just a beautiful as pictures and post cards portray and plenty of things to do within a couple of hours drive maximum.
We are a young busy family consisting of 3 children 12, 7 & 3.
James and I both work on the farm full time so we need the extra help to keep on top of the house, gardens and playing with the kids!
we try to encourage an out door life style (getting hands and feet dirty and exploring whilst learning).
our hobbies at home are horse riding ,fishing and hunting and RnR on the beach ;)
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals

Living and being part of a family living on the land in new Zealand. Whangamata is a beautiful coastal town with hidden beaches.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Help required would be help around the house - tidying, cooking, cleaning.
