We have a small beekeeping business.
We have a large organic vege gardens and fruit trees.
We eat mostly our own meat and eggs.We have 20 chickens ,6 duck, 2 cows and 8 sheep .
We eat healthy food but love treats too. We make our own yoghurt , kombucha, kimchi and love to try new foods.
Our home is an old farmhouse cottage which is homey, with two woodburners.The accommodation is a SMALL 10 foot caravan really suitable for 1 person or a couple or very close friends!
Helpers are welcome to spend time in our home when relaxing. We need help with the gardening and property maintenance, beekeeping and jobs associated with beekeeping.Planting time is usually busy as we are developing native plantings and adding more fruit trees and bushes each season. We have other projects too, like building a big treehouse and some building and painting going on. We are a short walk from the village and the Waiau River. There are some good walks nearby. We would like to host people familiar with farm work, organic gardening or those who have a genuine interest and want to learn.Most of the work is related to the garden.We prefer helpers with a car, we are 22km from nearest town where a bus stops. Spring is here and things are getting pretty hectic, we need people who love to garden and don't mind helping out with the beekeeping jobs.
