  • Description


    We are Andrew and Janet and we live on a 28 acre lifestyle block at Okaihau (Northland). We have 4 independent young adult children that have all left home although some do pop back from time to time. Andrew is a mechanic/agricultural contractor and works from home, I am a business services coordinator for Fire and Emergency New Zealand and travel to work daily.
    We run cows and sheep on our block and also have 1 x cat, 1 x dog, 1 x pig and several chickens.
    We are based 20 minutes from Kerikeri and 30 minutes from Paihia and the Bay of Islands.
    We have recently purchased another block of land and are looking for people to help us with both building and landscaping on the new block and gardening and tidying up around our existing block to help us get it ready for sale later in the year.
    We have done limited overseas travel, Andrew spent 18 months in the UK several years ago, but we are always looking for places to visit that are off the beaten tourist route.
    We have a range of hobbies we do in our quiet time from reading books through to 4 wheel driving and would be happy to share these with you. We have traveled extensively throughout New Zealand and would love to exchange travel stories.

    We would love to share our knowledge with other people, and learn from them as well. We will be able to teach you about rural living in Northland. Andrew is the local Chief Fire Officer so we are involved in the community and would be keen to share our community with you. There is lots of things to be learnt as we embark on our building journey.

    Update - 1st Aug 2020. We are wanting to get some gardening/landscaping & tree planting done while the soil conditions are favourable.
    We would like people to help us with some gardening/landscaping and building. We want to get our gardens in order heading into the winter and have a couple of landscaping projects to tackle as well. We are about to erect a half round barn that we would also like help with.
    You will be working along side us most of the time. There may be the odd task you will feel comfortable tackling alone which is fine by us.
    We would prefer any Workawayer's that choose us to have a good understanding of English.

  • Hébergement


    You will have your own bedroom (double bed) and share a bathroom with any other Workawayer that may be here at the same time. Our house is roomy so there are areas where you can take yourself away to for a quiet break. We offer food and accommodation in return for 5 hours work per day, 5 days per week. We will have dinner's together which usually consists of meat, veges and sometimes rice or pasta. Happy to try new things if you have a specialty dish. We will supply all towels and sheets etc.
