Greetings from Karen and critters.
Bending Tree is a small hobby farm with friendly animals..I have a few calves, sheep, lambs, ducks, chinese silkie hens, three legged cat who rules and the donkeys all with different personalities and fun to be with. After volunteering in a donkey sanctuary in Ireland I decided to breed donkeys here in NZ in my retirement and I love it.
Maungaturoto is a small village with shops, two cafes and great old fashioned fish and chips.It's an easy walk or there are two bikes.
Waipu Cove and Mangawhai beaches are 20 minutes away. Also glowworm cave within 20 minutes by car. Feel like a cool swim in small waterhole only 5 k away.

We have fun animals to enjoy and recently two new donkey foals. With spring coming I am training donkeys and good to have help with this
I provide meals and accommodation for 4 hours help per day.
Some flexibility with hours so you can have time to explore but mostly we start 7.30 and have the afternoon off to relax or explore.
Help with stuff like picking up donkey poo, feeding animals, gardening, small projects, weeding Mostly outside work.
Comfy room inside with own bathroom and wi-fi or cabin for privacy with two single beds no power but wi-fi. Have traveled a lot and still head off a couple of times a year, so enjoy meeting other travelers.

I can pick you up from the Brynderwyn bus stop. We are 90 minutes from Auckland,
