We are a Dairy Farm in New Zealand who host farmstay volunteers. Working 3-4 hrs per day with two days off a week free to see some beautiful NZ sites. We can organise a pick up and drop off service on these trips if arranged in advance. But better still if you have an international licence it would be a great advantage. We are on the main Bus routes as well. We are situated in close to 3 key tourist cities and also close to transport to Tongariro crossing. We have free wifi, rooms are inside main house, dinners are cooked and food available from the kitchen for your other meals. Plenty of pets to pat and cuddle. If you think you are interested, please contact us we are keen to get to know you. It is your opportunity to try milking the cows and to learn about New Zealand farming and practice your English (kiwi) language.
