Phelps farm is small farm that breeds and shows rare breed poultry. I started this with my husband who has recently passed away. We are located in mamaku village just outside of Rotorua itself. I would love to share my house and experiences with others.

Help around the house
We treat you like part of the family while you stay with us, so you get to experience kiwi life with a kiwi family, you also get to experience of being around alot of different animals and learn about keeping chickens and other animals.
Do you like getting your hands dirty? Love working with and around animals? Like the opportunity to live with a down to eat kiwi family? Able to work on your own and think outside the box? Then we are looking for someone to help out in our small lifestyle block in Mamaku Rotorua. We are just 15mins from Rotorua so on your down times you are free to go explore the area. We really just need help with looking after and cleaning out our animals while we are at work and school.
You must be honest and trustworthy, we prefer that you are able to communicate well and are hard working. So please only answer if you are prepared to help.
We have a double bed located in our home. It is warm and clean gives you the feel of being a part of our family as well as your own privacy while you are with us.
We have lovely walking tracks, bush walks, close to Rotorua as well so you are welcome to go into town on your down times and days off.
