  • Description

    Description

    We run a homestead on a little over 10 acres . So there will be work on the farm or helping out with customers who stay. No two days are the same and it makes for an interesting time all around.

    When there's nothing to do (which we can arrange - remembering your on holiday and we like the chilled lifestyle) then we relax with a beer and watch the world go by.

    Although we're not in the center of Masterton (about 5 minute drive outside), if you have transport then we're a great base to explore the Wairarapa and further afield.

    (Please note that Masterton is in the Wairarapa, which is about 2 hours north of Wellington along SH2 - your own transport would be useful, but not essential to get here and explore).

    Come and experience the lifestyle life in New Zealand, we have cattle, sheep, pigs and chickens (and George the dog). Plenty to keep you busy and plenty to see and do in your down time. I'm sure we'll find some jobs around you can take care of.

  • Help

    Help

    Loads of gardening tasks (we'd love to get the veggie garden up to scratch) and general maintenance around the farm to help with. But still plenty of time to chill also.
