Hi :)

You will notice some of the pictures have helpers dressed in rain coats..... If we have a job to do, we get on & do it... rain, hail or shine! We have spare raincoats :)

We are a small family with big hopes to live as sustainably & organically as we can (not really interested in getting certified though).
You need to be comfortable with children, dogs, horses, cows, hens, ducks, sheep & whatever else comes along (pigs are in the pipe-line!)
We employ natural horsemanship techniques with our horses (& are keen to further our learning there).

At the moment, we are in need of some serious weed-control before the hay-maker arrives, so your primary task will be grubbing thistles!

We would also like the house and possibly a bit of garden tidied up before Christmas, so there will be house-cleaning type jobs to do also.

We are very busy and are not always here, so you need to be able to follow instructions and work unsupervised.
We are happy for you to work a longer day and then have a day off - there are a lot of great day-trips you can do from here (Hobbiton, Waitomo, Raglan.....)

We have a 5 year old who loves having visitors to hang out with. He will keep you well entertained.
We do expect you will interact with him and talk to him about where you have come from, maybe even teach him a bit of your language.

We are happy to try & help you to learn a bit about farming/animal care, gardening & cooking, if you're keen :)

We are nestled at the South end of Mt Pirongia, with lovely views over a good chunk of the Waikato.
35min drive to Waitomo & Hamilton.
1 hour to Raglan beach.

PLEASE give us an indciation of what dates you would like to stay with us when you first contact us. It makes things a lot easier! :)
