  • Description


    Hi we are a friendly family living on a beef farm in the far north of NZ only 12kms from Kaitaia. We have 3 boys aged 7,9 and 11yrs who are very happy and energetic. Also various animals like cats, dogs, horses, and some calves.
    Our lives are very busy with running the farm and running around after 3 kids which is why we are looking for some extra help during the busy calving season.
    You will be made very welcome in our house and we will do everything to ensure you have a wonderful time with us.
