  • Description


    Come stay on Australasias oldest Angus Stud Farm beside the sea. We are on the beach, 10 minutes from Gisborne with a large warm home with self contained cabin accommodation. We would love to get to know new cultures and give you an experience of kiwi farm life. We are a very happy family and have traveled NZ and overseas ourselves so appreciate meeting new people! Welcome to use us as a base to explore NZ!

    We are currently looking for a workawayer who would like to become a part of our family and stay for weeks and potentially months. We would love someone who genuinely loves kids, uses initiative, is friendly and has good spoken english. Help would include looking after the boys, housework and a bit of gardening.

    Please do not apply if you are not already within NZ or do not fit the above criteria.

We currently have puppies and pet lambs if you love animals

  • Help


    We need help with our busy family life (3 v social boys aged 6 ,4 and 2 years) and maintaining our lovely home. Would love help for four hours in the morning gardening, preparing food, cleaning, and looking after the boys. We are pretty flexible with days and timings of your hours helping out. Travelers can go out on the farm with Paul when they arent working for a true kiwi farm experience or enjoy the beach. We know NZ really well and tend to become great friends with our workawayers putting them in touch with our contacts throughout the country.
