    Description

    Hi,
    I am looking for a work-awayer to come hang out for 2 weeks to help me out around the home.

    We live on a working dairy farm with 400 milking cows. We also have another 200 yearlings and calves. A couple of dogs and a handful of chickens.

    Duties will include being available if my son wakes up early while I get cows up (basically do this whilst asleep as he hardly ever wakes up).
    House cleaning (getting ready for a whole lot of Christmas visitors)
    Finishing a chicken enclosure with netting.
    Gardening
    Dog grooming

    You will have the option to hang out on the farm and see how things work. Some farm work can be made available if you are interested.

    Our home is at the base of the Karikari penisula. You are only an hours drive from the Bay of Islands. There are beaches everywhere.

    I take my son to Kindy four days per week and can drop you in Taipa for the day.

    Tour bus goes past our road to Cape Reinga for a whole day experience including sand surfing.

    If you have a car you are within an hours drive of hundreds of beaches, Bay of Islands, the most awesome Kerikeri Market, Kaitaia market, Historic Mangonui, bush walks etc etc. Or just come and hang out on a beautiful dairy farm with a spectacular view of Doubtless Bay.

    Pool is now open for swimming.
