    Description

    Come and experience the kiwi farming lifestyle. The farms run by a kiwi Irish couple. Accommodation available and every day farming chores milking 400 cows. With the cows only weeks away from calving there's a great opportunity to enjoy Spring life down on the farm. Only 2 minutes away from the nearest town and on the footsteps of mt Taranaki where you can ski and snowboard or 25 minutes away from the nearest city New Plymouth where you can surf.
