  • Description


    We live about one hour south of Napier, in a rural area. On our 60 Acre beef farm, we have about a 140 calf’s and cattle and about 10 Sheep. We got 4 dogs, 2 cats, 3 Alpaca and 12 chicken and a lorikeet. We also got another 80 acres with some heifers on it. It’s a bit further away. We need to have a bit of fencing done there. At the 60 acres we are needing weeding, and firewood. Also moving fencelines for the calf’s, and help around the place and house.
