Hi, we have an 18 acre lifestyle block with a large organic vegetable garden, natural bush, wetlands and gardens, ducks, chickens, calves, lambs etc. Help would involve anything from helping in the gardens, to building an animal shelter, fixing a fence, planting native trees. being fit and strong is helpful, and a love for the outdoors essential.
you will have your own bedroom, bathroom, meals with us and we are always excited to try other country's recipes. During summer we often eat outside for breakfast, lunch and dinner, BBQs and sometimes hangi (NZ style cooking). In winter we often have roasts and hearty NZ meals.
We live 20 minutes from Mount Maunganui in the Bay of Plenty, 3 hours away from the snow fields, even closer to weekend away hiking trips. We are keen hunters, fishers and hikers, so if possible you can come with us. We are non smokers and prefer non smokers, we love the outdoors and are pretty relaxed about most things.
