  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of four and live on a chestnut orchard in the Bay of Plenty, we need help out with various things on the property. Both my husband and I have travelled extensively and lived outside of New Zealand a number of times so want to offer travellers an insight into New Zealand life.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Both myself and my husband Peter have travelled extensively and enjoy the opportunity to be able to meet with other travellers, and provide an insight to the NZ lifestyle. We want our boys to also have experiences of other cultures from a young age.

    Help

    On the orchard we need various help at different times of the year around the property as there is always something to be done.

    The really busy time for us is harvest time which is in March/April when our main job is harvesting chestnuts. We also need to grade chestnuts which goes from March to May/June. We also have a number of Feijoa trees and need to pick fruit from these in April/May.

    Other times of the year we always have mowing, weeding and other property work to be done at various times. In 2019 after the chestnut harvest is over we have a number of trees to cut down so we can clear our house site and make room for some avocado trees that we will pant over coming years. Occasionally we may need help in and around the house.
