Come be our first Workaway!
We're a rural family farm 45 min out from Auckland with lots of native bush and animals including Peacocks ducks chickens sheep and dogs
We will need help with a wide variety of tasks that need doing each day, from gardening to feeding animals. building structures and creating artistic features.
You'll be supplied with food and accommodation. We also have plenty of room for campers and Van dwellers too!
We are a Family of artists and travelers and so love meeting people from all over the world. I've been a part of work away for many years and have switched to being a host now that I have finally retuned to my home country.
Along with the animals and rural lifestyle,
We have a lovely house in the city with a hot tub that is always hosting guests from around the world.
We love to show people around and help out where we can. whether its helping find a car or simple advice about NZ.
