  • Descrição


    We are a kiwi family of myself, husband and our 2 boys aged 10 and 11 years. We have recently returned home to New Zealand after traveling for 18 months and bought a rural property in Northland, New Zealand. It needs a lot of work to make it home and so we are hoping to have some keen workers come and help. During our travels we worked as workawayers in India, England and Portugal and really loved the experience.

    We are hoping to continue our travels through having interesting and vibrant people come to us, and also have some help on our small farm. We have 26 hectares of paddocks and native New Zealand bush, with an old farmhouse.

    At this stage the work is mostly building/decorating or gardening as well as usual farm chores like animal care and cutting firewood. We would love to finish painting the house this summer. We have dry stone walling, but not the skills to repair this yet so it would be a bonus if someone knew about that. We are adding animals as we go, but at the moment we have someone else grazing the land. We have chickens, cat, dog and a pony.

    New Zealand weather is very changeable - from sunshine to thunderstorms and back again very easily, so you never know what the day will bring. So yes we have lots to do and can base priorities on the skills you have.

    We are flexible on working days and hours, if you want long weekends to go and sight see we can easily work around that. If the work is really hard everyone will want to do a shorter day.

    We love hosting families and can be flexible around your childcare needs to make that work. We have a large guest bedroom with a queen and single bed, with trundler. There is a second bathroom near that room for your use.

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    Our guests will get to spend some time in a typical New Zealand family in a rural situation. They can learn about the native flora and fauna and how we work with the land. We love our slice of paradise and would love to share it with others. We also hope to learn from our guests as everyone brings a new perspective, skills and interests.

    Algo mais...

    We live in the country about 4kms from a small village where there really is not much to do and no public transport at all. You will need a car. If you are looking for bright lights and big city this is not the place for you!

    Within 40 minutes are some amazing beaches and we try and go as often as we can as we love the wild NZ ocean. Also nearby is the town of Whangarei and access to the Far North with 90 mile beach and Cape Reinga. This is real rural New Zealand and is an experience in it's own right.
