Help needed with Gardening, Bananas and Animals in Doubtless Bay Northland, New Zealand



 Séjour min. souhaité : Au moins une semaine



  • Description


    Hi I'm Neil, I am the owner of a 15 Hectare property overlooking the beautiful Doubtless Bay in the Far North of the North island of New Zealand.
    I have worked in many industries both in NZ and in the Asia Pacific area, these occupations include back country work for the NZ Dept of Conservation, Engineering work in oil and gas exploration, Civil construction of large scale public marine aquariums and scuba dive charters in many areas of Asia and Australia before returning to New Zealand and working in the Civil Engineering industry.
    I am now employing myself to work on this 15 Hectare property that was previously planted with a variety of fruit trees, I have established a small banana plantation, from which the fruit is sold at a local market.
    I currently graze a small herd of friendly cattle of various ages and have a small flock of Boer cross goats to keep weeds and scrub bushes under control.
    The property is very conveniently located for day adventures to the tip of the North Island (Cape Reinga) and the many beaches of the far North.
    The area is renown for fishing and diving opportunities or exploring the isolated beaches.
