  • Description


    Hi everyone !!!

    We established this small lifestyle farm 4 years ago. This became the best adventure of our lifes!
    We are roughly 15min from town, with stunning views of the ocean.. High up in the hills, peaceful and quiet, you will not forget the place!

    We grow vegetables of all kind in our garden and this is mostly organic, we make our own compost and grow our own seedlings in the green house! A lot to share to you!

    We are also developing our property, we have already planted over a thousand trees and would like to keep planting more around the property! But we are also building a beautiful house and we are needing help mostly to take the weight of our gardening project but if necessary, help with building and maintenance work.

    We have a little caravan with own living kitchen available for the right person, keep in mind we are totally off grid and use solar energy, composting toilets and outside showers.
    We also enjoy a few drinks, going out, live music and a surf every now and then too!

    If you want an authentic experience get in touch ! Must have a car.

    Safe travels !

    So for more info on where we are at...
    We really need people keen to garden with passion! we are after people that are experienced in gardening & landscaping ideally and with a natural common sense of what needs to get done around the place without supervision, being happy to be here, and self motivated! (Please don’t look at your watch every 15mins 😂)

    We have a big organic garden and we will need help with gardening, landscaping,
    weeding, hedging... you will also be able to learn how to plant trees and grow cuttings and seedlings.

    But, you must have a car to get here, no exceptions.

    We are also building a sustainable house, so you may be able to contribute if you have skills in the construction field or Help us clean. It’s a pretty cool project tho!

    We also have dogs, sheep and ducks..
    The Raglan beach is only 15 -20min drive.
    We both surf and when we have spare time, we enjoy a wave and a walk on the beach, rock climbing too and hiking/ fitness etc...
