My farm is located 15 minutes west of Kaiwaka (about and hour north of Auckland) on the edge of the Kaipara harbour (the second largest harbour in the world).

I am in my 30s and run a 840 acre beef farm.

There is a wide array of tasks available on the farm depending on your experience and what you are interested in learning. Tasks also vary by what time of the year and can include day to day farm jobs like helping shift stock, drenching cattle, weed control, fencing aswell as household jobs and gardening. There are also a few farm buildings that could do with a coat of paint.

Main job at this time of year is thistle/weed spraying on ATV. So ATV (All Terrain Vehicle or Quad bike)experience would be good.


Expect about 4 hours of work a day in return for food and accommodation
Extra paid work is available if you have work visas and are a good worker.

Would prefer people that have a interest in farming.

I enjoy meeting people from different parts of the world and learning how they live.

Is easiest if you have a car, but there is a bus stop at Kaiwaka, also I travel to Auckland atleast weekly so could arrange pick up if organised in advance.

Internet access /wifi available.
