Accommodation is in a separate converted sheep shed where I supply the food and you do your own cooking as mine is not that great. I prefer work to start no later than 10am. Arrival is on a Tuesday morning at 8.30am and departure is also on a Tuesday at 8.30am. I am not vegetarian but vegetarians are welcome with appropriate food supplied. Smokers welcome if you smoke outside. Pretty much everything you need is supplied.
I need a bit of help renovating an old train carriage into a tiny house and if you are a gas fitter/plumber or an electrician your help would be much appreciated.
I generate some of my own power with solar electric and solar hot water, muesli,laundry detergent, soap, jams, preserves, seed saving, spin and knit wool and grow beef and vegetables and beekeeping bees for honey. Also I have about an acre of blueberries. Blueberry picking season is generally in January and February.
While I do these things I don't do them every day as farms are seasonal. I have a variety of animals and general farm jobs that are ongoing and varied.
After living here for 22yrs I finally now have cell ph coverage but ago-not 2 degrees.
As there is no public transport to the farm I can collect you from Silverstream Railway Station. This is on the Upper Hutt Railway Line & about 40 min out of Wellington Central. Please wait on the seat outside the Charltons Pub across from the train station. If you are driving it is best to print off a map from google and look for the blueberry sign outside.
I enjoy a good laugh but appreciate my privacy in the evenings. Look forward to hearing from you soon.
