I live on a 120 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,cat,horse and 2 donkeys that love attention.Very quiet location and very nice rural view from all windows.Farm is 5km from Waiotahe Beach, and few minutes from the Ohiwa Harbour,Opotiki is 15 mins away and Whakatane is 30 mins away
I am feeding calves now and could do with help
If interested in learning about milking the cows and helping on farm that would be fantastic
Help with Eco project
Help in the house
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 where you are able to take a boat ride to the famous White Island (volcanic island 50K from shore) is also just 30 minutes drive.Ohiwa Harbour has a small track to which glow worms live with a fantastic view at the top
The kind of help I could need is gardening,housework,firewood,fixing fences(instruction given),cutting firewood(skillsaw),digging,clearing and fixing culvets....going on farm to tidy up.
Most of time I would be there to show/help too
at present feeding many cute calves......
Queen bed in private room in my big house,shared bathroom with my son....when he is home
