Hi there, we have approximately 53ha between two properties. The main homestead is on 4ha and the remaining 49 ha is a small sheep and cattle farm. We are currently setting up a beekeeping business as well. We are a middle aged couple with three adult children (one still at home), three lovely dogs and a cat. You will have your own room upstairs at the homestead. There is also a bathroom and toilet upstairs as well. We have a large open plan kitchen/dining/lounge but if you would prefer your own space there is a separate lounge. We have a reasonably large garden and we are within 10minutes of the nearest town and close to beaches and a 40 minute drive to the beautiful Abel Tasman National Park
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
Learning new skills with livestock and bees and and finding out about the beautiful piece of the world that we call home.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We require a bit of help with weeding and keeping up with our garden, some general household chores, collecting firewood, window cleaning etc. we also would be offering a bit of help on the farm with the stock and checking and repairing fences. If you are interested and are not allergic to bees there is also the opportunity to help out with the hives, so if this sounds good to you, we would love to hear from you
Your room is upstairs in the homestead. It has a comfortable queen size bed, there is also a bathroom and toilet which is also used by our adult daughter and her partner.
We live ten minutes from Richmond and 25 minutes from Nelson. There is a very nice beach 5 minutes away and Abel Tasman National Park 40 minutes away where there are beautiful walking tracks, beaches, swimming, kayaking etc.
