Paul and I live on a small farm. Our 5 children are all grown and living overseas and in Hawkes Bay.Our combined interests include surfing (anything to do with the sea) travel, hiking, conservation and the environment,gardening...
We farm cattle and have a few sheep on our property, which is east of our nearest town, Waipawa (approx 20 km)in Central Hawkes Bay. We have expansive rural views and great outlook to the west over the ranges.
Only 10 minutes drive (15km) to the closest beach or the river - good summertime swimming, surfing and fishing. There are some lovely tramping / walking tracks in the eastern Ruahine forest Park 45 - 60 minute drive to access.

General farm jobs, lots of gardening, house work and odd jobs.If you have carpentry / building / painting skills that would be great for our current project.
Pets include 3 dogs and 2 cats and too many chooks and ducks.
We offer own room in our home with good food in exchange for 4 hours work per day (average)- can be flexible ie a full day then a day off etc.
Non smokers only please.Limited cell phone coverage (txting at best) and broad band (wireless) internet available - limited data.There is no public transport out here so having your own transport is an advantage.
