We are a family of five with three school aged children. We own a kiwifruit orchard and nursery. Our family are active and we love the outdoors and the beach. We have mountain bikes which are available for use. The majority of any help will be in the nursery which includes weeding, sorting and grading plants. Household chores may include washing windows, housework etc.
You must have your own vehicle to come and stay with us :)

We are an active outdoor family and our property is close to beaches and lakes. Our closest beach is 15 minutes away and Lake Rotoiti just just 35 minutes away. Rotorua, which is famous for Maori culture, geothermal activity and loads of activities is just 40 minutes away. Beautiful Mount Maunganui is also only a 40 minute drive. This is a spectacular surfer beach and you are able to climb up the Mount or walk around it. There are many 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 40 minutes drive.
We own a Kiwifruit orchard and nursery and require casual volunteers to assist. We will be planting in our nursery in early August so will need helpers from then!
