  • Description


    We are a family of 4, Kurt, Lisa, Beauden (6) and Axel (3) in the South Wairarapa of New Zealand.
    We live on a large Sheep and Beef farm which Kurt manages full time, and Lisa works on part time.
    We're a busy bunch, and would love to share our corner of the world with guests who could use a place to stay and are interested in the kiwi way of life.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our Farm offers accommodation and tours, as well as working with our own wool and honey products.
    We'd love to show you how New Zealand agriculture works, and how we involve ourselves in the tourism industry.

  • Help


    The help we would be looking for would be a bit of mix of things!
    We would welcome travellers who are interested in helping out all over the show, including gardening and assisting with preparations for home renovations and general household chores.
    If it suited both parties there could also be some occasional babysitting.
