Our horse agistment property is located in Brookby, a beautiful rural area 25 minutes from Auckland Airport, and 35 minutes drive from Auckland City centre.

On our farm we provide grazing and equestrian facilities for 18 horses (most of them are privately owned by other people), and also run approx 20 beef cattle.

Our Helpx jobs include weed control, fencing, tree trimming, chainsaw work, general gardening, general manual labour and home cleaning. Please note you will not work directly with horses, unless you are very experienced and confident.

We ask for 4 hours work per day in exchange for accommodation and meals. Or 2 hours per day if you wish to provide your own food. We are flexible with working hours and days (eg if you want to work extra hours during the week then take the weekends off, that is fine with us).

As our farm is approx 15 kms from the nearest public transport, it is helpful if our Help-x guests have their own vehicle. Having your own transport will enable you to explore our beautiful region (there is no public transport). The scenic Clevedon Village is a 5 minute drive away, with cafes and basic necessities. There is plenty to do in the area including hiking, mountain biking, beaches within 15 minutes' drive, and local vineyards - all of these are accessible if you have your own vehicle.

Self-contained accommodation is provided, which allows our help-x workers to enjoy their own space. There is also a swimming pool and tennis court which helpers are welcome to use.

Please contact us by email only.
