  • Description


    Gidday my names nick i manage a 560 cow dairy farm here in riversdale its a family farm, i also have one brother allan also managing another family farm with his wife emma who are soon to be parents.
    Ive travelled myself over the last 8 years and found the times we had homestays and meet the everyday people of our host country the most rewarding.
    I'm quit active i enjoy mountain biking and crossfit during the week and weekends are a mix of sociallising motocross maybe more mountianbiking. Other less frequent activitys include sea fishing, diving & tramping/hiking I try & do one of nw zealands great walks every year (yes you may borrow my tramping gear whilst you stay)
    I enjoy to be social mostly though sports and activitys occasionally over a few drinks/dinner parties, I'd like to introduce you to friends of mine and local people i think you'd get along with and for you to get to know the real new zealand.
