We are a young family that run/own a citrus nursery/sheep and beef farm located 20 mins from Gisborne city. We have a spacious 5 bedroom homestead minutes from the beach, and we have a pool!
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We will take the time to teach you the basic process about growing citrus trees. We will also show you around our sheep and beef farm, to give you an insight into rural NZ. We really enjoy showing people our beautiful countryside.
We require help in the citrus nursery. De-shooting trees, staking and tying and pruning. We will provide training on the job, it is easy to learn. We have three young kids so help in the homestead garden grounds and in the house will is appreciated. Occasional help on the farm is needed too. We are very flexible so you can choose what jobs suits you best.
We provide a private king room with your own bathroom in our spacious country house. All meals are provided by us. I like to cook but I'm also happy for others to cook for us, I love to learn new recipes. A lot of the food served is local, either from the farm or local fruit/vegetable market. Our house is 3km in land so its very peaceful here.
Tolaga bay wharf 30mins away. Tatapouri stingray feeding 10mins away. Pouawa marine reserve 5mins away. There is no bus out this way but we are happy to collect/drop off at the bus stop or airport (provided its not 6am!) I go to town 2-4 times a week so you can visit the local sights in the city. There are plenty of walks/wine tasting/museum to see.
