  • Description

    Description

    My husband Kerry and I (Jacqui) are both teachers (nearing retirement), though we have experienced a number of other jobs in our lives. We have a Border Collie dog named Maggie, chickens, rabbits, native birds, a generous vegetable garden, and a big landscaped garden. We do all of the work on the orchard ourselves, including picking, pruning etc.

    Our facilities are modern. We lead a healthy lifestyle.

    Kerry is also a builder and often has a project underway. He loves do it yourself projects'.
    Jacqui is also a yoga instructor, enjoys cooking and gardening and loves working alongside Kerry.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Both of us ( Jacqui and Kerry my husband) have travelled widely, we are both teachers. Our orchard is small and hence we do most of the work. We are looking for energetic travellers, who are happy to fit in with our 'do it yourself' rural lifestyle. We are a few minutes walk from the beach, ten minutes drive to the closest town (Opotiki, Bay of Plenty). Public transport is NOT easily available.
