Hi

I milk 60 cows on my family Farm here in Oromahoe which is actually about 1 hour north of Whangarei and only 10 minutes drive to Paihia and Kerikeri. The milk is used in our Cheese factory. Along with the 60 milking cows there is general farm work ie fencing weeding fertilizing, haymaking, tractor work, firewood. There is three generations of cows to care for. The Milkers,the Yearlings and the Calves.Work On my farm really suits those that have a genuine interest in farming in return I'm happy to invest my time in sharing what I know.On the scale of farms in NZ this farm would be considered small. Accomodation is at My Grandmothers place across the field .(she isn't there at the moment and we are renovating it so we need loads of help cleaning painting and some construction too.) there's a pizza oven in the garden and we like to use it at much as possible. I love the ocean.... surfing, diving, fishing,just being in it! So when possible I'm there! I would prefer older (25 + years)
Currently we have space for up to four helpers. give me a call to discus what we have available. Regards Tim.
