  • Description


    Come stay on Australasias oldest Angus Stud Farm beside the sea. We are on the beach, 10 minutes from Gisborne in a beautiful homestead. 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 would love a couple or female volunteer to come join us on our farm on the beach, near some epic surf spots 20minutes north of Gisborne. We live in a gorgeous homestead with our 3 young boys, dog milo and would love a hand with gardening, painting, playing with the kids and general housework. Option for some environmental and farm work also! You will have your own 'workaway wing' with own bedroom and lounge. Paul and I are a busy but laid back couple and our social kids have loved having woofers join us in the past. We would love some one who is proactive positive and enjoys kids!
    PM for more information and to introduce yourself!

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