WE live on a 500 hectare sheep and beef farm which includes a 2 hectare organic orchard
The farm has three kilometres of river frontage on the tukituki river which makes it ideal for swimming kayaking and fishing ,bird watching or simply watching the world go by
We have sheep .cattle ,dogs ,cats,pigs, chooks and wild turkeys as well as humans Lucie raises calves which need to be fed twice a day
We have four kayaks and fishing rods avaliable
it is also great cycling country but we have no bikes as yet
We have two daughters aged four and two who are very outgoing and friendly and talk a lot
We are looking for someone to help round the farm and with the calves and also if inclined to assist with the children and perhaps assist with light domestic duties
We also need assistance to construct a state of the art pigsty to ensure the pigs live in comfort over the coming winter before being turned into sustenance
An enthusiastic pig sty construction trainee would be most welcome
Lucie is from Olumoc in the Czech republic so visitors from that part of the world are especially welcome since they help the children improve their czech language skills .The two year old is currently mostly speaking gibberish but intersperses her mutterings with some czech and english.The four year old is fluent in english and czech and has a lot to say in both languages
T
he Patangata Tavern ,a delightful country pub is within walking distance and provides a pleasant respite when visitors need a rest from a gibbering two year old or for that matter a gibbering adult
There is always plenty to do and as the farm rises to a height of 330 metres with extensive views all over Hawkes Bay ,it makes for quite a nice outdoor office if you are fencing ,tree planting moving stock or simply contemplating the universe
Accommdation comprises a separate self contained unit with kitchen and bathroom facilites and one double bed plus a foldout bed
Nearest town is Waipawa which has most things necessary for survival and a bus service to and from the rest of the world
