    Hi! We are James and Catherine and we manage a sheep and beef station in a beautiful part of the Hawkes Bay!
    We have a new baby called George, 2 pet dogs, 5 farm dogs, 2 cats and a pet steer and sheep!
    We have a swimming pool and tennis court available for use too.
    We have large grounds and would like ideally a couple/friends that were keen to come and help in the garden/ exterior of house!
    We may work with you sometimes or give you some jobs and leave you to it.
    We have a cottage on the farm for accommodation, we would also love to show you around the farm and meet the other people that live and work here too!

    Helpers definitely need their own transport as we are out of town and there is no public transport available. No smokers please. We are 50 min from the airport in Napier.

    We ask that helpers work from 8.30 to 12.30 each day but it is fine to work for a full day and have a day off.
    We provide all meals - but sometimes if we are out - or busy for the evening we will ask you to cook your own meal in the kitchen attached to the accommodation. We will provide all the food and the kitchen is well set up.
