Welcome to the farm. We live in a beautiful area of West Auckland, close to local beaches, huge areas of native forests with streams, waterholes and beautiful scenery.
We are located on Bethells Rd within walking distance of train and/or bus facilities.
Our farm is rolling hills with pockets of native bush and a large pond which can be swum in also.
We have many different kinds of animal like a dog, cows, sheep( one of them is a cute pet lamb), chickens and rabbits.
We keep some animals for home kill.
We have hosted many cultural and work exchange visitors for a number of years and we all, including our three boys, enjoy meeting travellers from all over the world. We always encourage help in the kitchen as we love to experience traditional and local dishes from wherever you are from.

Sunny day -gardening, some work in the paddock, hay baling, weed control, some simple building tasks etc
Rainy day- some housework
there are 2 types of accomodation. One is a sleepout with a small kitchen and bathroom and TV. Queen size bed and a single bed. It has power and light. We are getting power only from our solar power system and collecting rain water (which is common around this area), so we ask you to be very sensible about the use of our limited resources.
The other option is really cozy but basic sleepout with a little sink and a bunk bed located in the beautiful paddock. No power is in this cottage.
