  • Description


    Hi, we are preparing to move house and need some assistance with childcare, packing and general gardening and tidying up. If you are free now or over the next couple of weeks get in touch. thanks

    We are a Family of three, who have a 23 acre smallholding. We have a few cattle and a whole lot of Feijoa trees which we harvest fruit from April to June. We have a large garden, lawn and home orchard as well as chickens and ducks. We also work fulltime so we are always in need of help around the property. We have a river running through the Western boundary of our property which is just divine to swim in after a days work.

    We have a steady stream of visitors flowing through our doors to help with the work and also entertainment.
