    EDIT - October - January 2019

    Hi there we are a fun loving family that love sports and the outdoors we require someone to help out on our busy farm and house we have 5 children Emma 15 - Kate 14 - Libby 12 Blake 10 and Ryan 6 The older 3 girls are at boarding school in New Plymouth (an hour away) mon-Friday. We have had Au Pairs and woofers for the past 10 years from Switzerland and Germany and have recently had a Spanish couple stay for a month, we have a wonderful relationship with them all, and you would be welcome to make contact.
    We milk 200 cows
    have 2 horses
    a dog black labrador
    2 kittens

    So there is always have something to do. We require help with milkings building planter boxes and landscaping daily household chores, gardening, and farm stuff.

    We are living near a small town called Hawera which is about 8km away, there are beaches and the mountain is about 20 mins away. Where you can enjoy and relax in your free time.
    The closest city is New Plymouth which is stunning with it beaches and coastal walkway, a popular destination for surfing, and a night out.
