We are a couple in our early 60's with 3 adult children all currently living overseas. We have owned our organic dairy farm for 16 years. We have a couple living on our farm who own the cows and milk them. We divide our time between Auckland and our farm. Our passion is planting native trees in our gullies ( which are outside the organic platform) to protect the land from erosion and restore biodiversity. It is a beautiful part of the country, and we love being there and enjoying the peacefulness

Our organic farm is situated in the beautiful Waikato area, with a river running along one boundary. It is close to many natural areas of interest, such as the Blue Springs, and Wairere Falls, as well as Hobbiton. For the last few years we have planted many NZ indigenous trees in the gullies to prevent erosion and restore biodiversity.

We are looking for help with our indigenous tree planting project and weed control in gullies situated on our organic dairy farm, and gardening work around our homestead. We are not looking for any help with the farming business.
Cet hôte propose un échange linguistique
I have tried to learn French in the past.
You would stay in a restored fully furnished cottage with 2 bedrooms, a bathroom and lounge/dining area set in a quiet tranquil garden, overlooking our farm. Our house is also in the same garden but completely separate from the cottage. We are not always at the farm, as we stay sometimes in Auckland but have a full-time farm manager. If we are there, we are very happy to make dinner but otherwise would provide money for you to purchase food.
There are many activities to do in our area such as hiking or biking the Waikato River Trail ,visiting Hobbiton or the Blue Springs or Sanctuary Mountain. You would need your own car or bicycles to get round.
