We have two very nice rural life-style properties, one 35mins from Wellington where we live mostly, and one in the Gladstone area, Wairarapa. We love welcoming and working alongside our new visitors. We are a married couple, our daughter still lives with us and my elderly mother.
We have quite large gardens, and would like help with maintaining these, and general small farm jobs.
Learn new skills, give local information for interesting sites etc to visit, and experience New Zealand cuisine.
Paddock and garden maintenance requiring use of tractor or ATV also experience not needed we will monitor abilities and give instruction where needed.
We need help periodically with farm stock maintenance ie sheep hoof trimming, lambing etc. we understand in most cases this will be a learning experience and will be hands on to teach.
Our Wellington home has full accommodation in the barn with a California size king bed which can divide into 2 king singles. All cooking facilities shower etc. There is use of house toilet or we have a composting toilet in the bathroom of the barn.
At our Wairarapa property we have accommodation in the main house or a house bus.
We are close to Wellington city, sea, rivers and hills. Lots of walking tracks, native bush reserve, but you will need a car to at least get you to the train station which is 8mins away. If we can we can drop you there.
