We do not currently need helpers thank you.

We are looking for fit mature helpers from time to time. It would suit us better if you have your own transport.

Mostly outdoors work such as creating and maintaining walking tracks, firewood, etc

The Farmstay is a 10 hectare (25acre) property, just outside Rotorua, with approximately 500 meters of a major stream running through it. It is a beautiful property, with lots of native trees, a stand of pine and the rest in paddocks, grazed by sheep and cattle.

The bottom part of the house is the farmstay accommodation area and will alternate as accommodation for helpers.No smoking allowed in or near the house. Work on the property is mostly outside, with the main tasks being maintenance (gardens and lawns), clearing invading plants, creating and managing pathways along the stream and planting trees. Also managing the compost area, looking after the chickens, cutting and splitting firewood and helping with the vegetable garden. Inside work could include cleaning, laundry and kitchen tasks, cooking meals, in other words something for everybody. Musically inclined helpers may be asked to play the piano or guitar :)
Access to town is approximately 15 minutes by car and 30-40 minutes by bicycle. We offer accommodation and meals for 4 hours of work a day, variations on this can be negotiated with individual helpers.
Wifi. Limited cell phone reception (Spark only).
Walking tracks, wildlife park, fish hatchery, and some other major tourist attractions on our road.
