230 acre drystock farm with Waikato river frontage. Solar power & mobile phone only-only Spark has good reception here. Mostly hill with bush, streams, pasture & gorse. Grazing dairy replacements & beef cows. I work as a business consultant to help cover expenses. Very early stages of development-aiming towards organic practices. Need help in every area but for this summer I need particularly gorse clearing, other noxious weed irradication & firewood this summer. Also building maintenance & garden development. I also have a couple of horses which need to be ridden in for rehoming also. Great lifestyle with river, horses (not for beginners), pets and beautiful scenery. I live with my two daughters (fortnightly). We are omnivores. Variety of accom options-have a rough style cabin with no power which you could self cater for less work in exchange for those who like independence and more time off-needs a clean up in the first instance. We have limited & expensive wifi each month so little usage available to you.

There is no broadband here but you can purchase Spark mobile wifi (note: Spark has free hotspots throughout NZ offering 1GB free per month). We only have one vehicle so it is better if you have your own transport.

Much to do here in your time off if you enjoy the outdoors. 230acres and 1.5km river frontage. I have a couple of old kyaks which do actually float-one of them is a comfortable tandem canoe. Port Waikato surf beach is approx 20mins away, Auckland city 50mins, Hamilton city 60mins
