We own and operate a zoo with heaps of animals!!! Goats, sheep, pigs deer, llamas, alpacas, Donkeys, Cockatoos, Guinea pigs etc. too many to name so check out our website link above. We also have around 12 horses and ponies which we use for pony rides and our own personal use. We have a large house & plenty of food; we have done plenty of travelling ourselves so know itís good to hold up for a while in one place. We have been farm-stay hosts for nine years, we are an outdoor active couple and love to open our home & meet new people.

As horses are a big part of our lives & our business , we are looking to host experienced horse riders only, we will take two people together as long as one is an experienced rider. Our horses are quiet & well behaved.
Our agreement will be that you help out around the place for 27 hrs a week in return for full board, which consists of your own furnished bedroom, all your food (most meals cooked for you) and internet access. Minimum stay 2 x weeks
Work involves general tasks around the zoo including bringing the animals into the display pens, cleaning, feeding, taking the animals out for the customers, grooming, housework, gardening etc, not to forget pooper scooping.
Local Amenities: Beach, pub, Takeaways, superette 4 square all only 5 mins walk away. Tuki Tuki River & Clive swimming pool.
Transport: There is no public transport to Haumoana, Clive is 5 km away to the nearest bus station. We will supply you with bikes & there are plenty of cycle trails to Napier or Hastings City (1hr bike), wineries & cafes.
