    Description

    Family farm located 5 minutes from Muriwai beach.
    We work all year round rearing calves and running dry stock.
    Large, spacious family home.
    Family of seven with five children - 3 who are currently at University, and two at home.
    There is plenty to do on our farm! Join in with the milking and calf feeding, help with gardening or housework, assist with maintenance like painting or mulching pens! There is a variety of activities as well as enjoying the local walks and beach in your spare time.
    Having a car is a bonus as we are 20minutes from public transport.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Come and stay with our family and enjoy some country living. We eat a lot of our own produce, and grow as much of our own fruit as possible. We border a large native bush reserve, and visitors love to take advantage of the lovely walks at our back door. Muriwai has one of the best surf beaches, and hosts its own "Gannet colony". We enjoy meeting people from all walks of life and sharing our family time with you.
