  • Description


    Hi, my wife and I live out in the country with our two daughters and mother on a 1-acre organic mango orchard on the main island of Oahu in Hawaii. We also have goats, dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, and chickens.

    Ideally, we are looking for a friends or a couple who are hard-working, responsible, and stable. You will mostly help with feeding animals, digging holes, planting, watering, raking, and other manual labor, and it’s hot, so please come prepared to sweat!!

    You will need to work a minimum of 20 hours a week if you share accommodations,

    We don't provide food except some fruits and veg from the farm. You do have your own kitchen though for cooking.

    No smoking or intoxicants allowed.

    There are supermarkets in town, which is about 2 miles away, but easily accessible by bus. The bus goes up and down the valley every hour, and you can get a day pass for only $5.50. Bus stop is only 300 feet away.

    In your free time, you can swim, hike, surf or tour the island!
