Hello, we are Emilie, Philipp, Theo (age 6) and Jonah (20 months), we would really love to welcome you into our home and family to help on our growing farmlet. We are developing an organic small holding using biodynamic and permaculture principles, we have 3.4 hectaires, consisting of mixed orchard, olive groves, paddocks and native bush leading to the Waingawa river. We are raising highland cows and various rare breed chickens, soon to be adding Arapawa goats and sheep to our stock.

We are in the foothills of the Tararua ranges, minutes from Mt Holdsworth Natonal Park (amazing hiking in pristine bush) and 10 minutes drive from both Carterton and Masterton in the Wairarapa region of the North Island of New Zealand. We have recently moved to this property and would love to have some help tending the vegetable and fruit gardens, feeding the animals and buiding fences for livestock. We have recently finished renovating a 2 bedroom cottage as wwoofing accommodation, which we plan to rent as bed and breakfast in the summer, we also have a mezanine room in the main house which some wwoofers prefer to sleep in. Full bathroom and kitchen facilities are provided. We are strictly a non-smoking property. We offer a fair deal 5/6 hours hard farm work for a place to stay and 3 meals. We work as a team - cooking/cleaning/dishes all shared - must be a team player and must like kids as we have 2 very friendly energetic boys who LOVE new friends to play legos or read stories with.
