  • Description


    We are a friendly, easy going couple who own a lifestyle block of 7Ha and look after many rescued farm animals. We also have 4 rescue dogs! We both work so we love to have some extra help in and around the farm. We are working towards becoming self-sustaining and so if you love the outdoors this is an ideal place to stay. We have a nice separate apartment for our helpers so you can have some privacy during your time off!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We enjoy having people staying from other countries and are happy to teach them different skills. You will gain lots of experience in caring for for farm animals. Including rearing of new born animals. We also make our own jams, butter and cheeses. The area where we live is very beautiful and close to Hunua falls, the botanic gardens, many national parks and beaches. You can travel into Auckland by train and take ferries to Waiheke or Rangitoto Islands for the day.

    ️We are looking for help for the day to day care of our animals and general upkeep of the property. Our lifestyle block hosts a variety of livestock including rescue animals and also includes a vegetable garden, hot house and fruit trees. Must be comfortable around dogs - we have 4!
    We live on a farm and working outdoors in the rain is sometimes required. Appropriate clothing and footwear are required.
