We live on a 10 acre lifestyle property with various animals, both pets (dogs and cats) and chickens. At times we also raise calves and pigs. We are developing our orchards, so far Feijoas, Apples, Hazelnuts. Other fruits around the house orchard and still planting. We also have bee hives, in case anyone has bee allergies.

Mainly outdoor work, weeding, mulching, planting. Helping a bit around the animals, cleaning out, etc. We have a vegetable garden and don't use harmful sprays. Sometimes Housework, cleaning, sanding, etc.We are renovating our house, an old villa and also the cottage we use for Homestay.
We offer accommodation and meals (main meal evening) for 4-5 hours work per day, flexible as to how it works out, can be 8 hours one day and off the next. No public transport, so if you want to get out and about often, then own transport needed. Papakura or Pukekohe (20mins drive) are the closest for trains or buses. Auckland airport is approximately 45 minutes drive away.
Accommodation is a large bedroom and en-suite separate to the house which we sometimes use for Homestays. Double bed only but happy to take single or couples. Minimum 5 day stay.

Strictly non-smoking, no drugs. We bring up and eat our own meat but can cater for vegetarians. We eat all types of food, a lot of Asian but we enjoy variety. English is our main language but are also learning Japanese. We have a Kyudo dojo set up on the property, so anyone can do daily practice.
