    Description

    We are a fun loving family of 5 who live in a beautiful remote part of New Zealand. We love meeting new people and having volunteers to stay. Come and meet our energetic children aged 5,3 & 1. Our three dogs, Burmese cat, our mad pet goat Alfie, baby kid Billy and 8 chickens. There is plenty to do and see in our beautiful region including surfing, feeding stingray, and fishing just to name a few. We live in an old farm house and we need a hand with the up keep of it restoring it to its former beauty as well as a bit of help in the garden. I love to cook especially for others and you will be well fed and rewarded for your efforts!! We look forward to meeting you!

    Help

    The help required is in the large country garden. Mainly pruning, tidying planting and weeding and the vegetable garden.
    We may require some spreading of metal on the drive way, and help with pruning larger branches.
    Some maintenance may be required on the farm sheds. But you would not need to be a qualified builder, just handy !! fencing repairs are also on the cards.
    The homestead is over 100 years old and up keep is ongoing. If the weather is too wet to be outdoors, we may need some help with sanding and painting inside the house.
