    Description

    I live on a 124 hectare dairy farm,milking 240 cows with some drystock. I have a farm worker who does the main farm work and lives 100 metres away. I have dog,cats,horse and 2 donkeys that love attention.Very quiet location and very nice rural views.Farm is 5km from Waiotahe Beach, and few minutes from the Ohiwa Harbour,Opotiki is 15 mins away and Whakatane is 30 mins away
    If interested in learning about milking the cows and the farm that would be fantastic

    Can practice English and teach them the kiwi way...learn where milk comes from and be close to animals and nature .There are several beautiful bush walks and mountain bike tacks nearby. Whakatane is also just 30 minutes drive.Ohiwa Harbour has a small track to which glow worms live with a fantastic view at the top
