We have a lifestyle property 9 kms from Warkworth in the North Island of New Zealand. We are not on the bus route but can offer transport to the nearest town, Warkworth where the bus service travels to Auckland or the north of the North Island.
You could describe us as “play farmers” with 11 hens, 1 Cat (Titus recently died sadly), two pigs and 2 sheep.
Our property consists of a house, swimming pool and spa and a separate dwelling (a cottage sleep out). We have some fields and almost 120 acres of covenanted bush. Some of the bush is mature and some is regenerating.
There are plenty of different projects we would appreciate help with to maintain the bush area. We have recently dug up, with the help of our friendly neighbours and their tractor, 10 mature flax plants and these now need to be divided up and planted. This is the main job and requires people with strength as flax is not an easy plant to work with.
There are also forest paths to maintain and develop and general gardening chores. For those of you who are inside bods i am sure we can find you cooking and cleaning jobs.

We can offer comfortable accommodation in a separate dwelling with ensuite and meals in exchange for weekend work and some days in the week with the opportunity of relaxing in the pool afterwards.
