We run a farm about 30 km out of Gisborne in a fabulous rural area. So you need your own transport to reach us. We have 1100acres of beautiful land to walk and sightsee over. We breed our own Bulls, for our yearly sale. We also have cows, sheep, pet lambs and also a beautiful calf, two cats, (farm)dogs, and a lot of fun. There are always jobs that we need a bit of help with, for example woodwork, gardening, playing tennis, stockwork, fencing and putting golfballs.

You will have your own room in our house. In your leisure you could use our tenniscourt, go for a walk, spend your time with the animals or go into Gisborne or Rere Rockslide and the Eastwoodhill Arboratum are only minutes away. Wi fi internet connection.
There is always something to do.
If you have special dietary needs or a vegetarian, you will need to provide some of your own food lentils, couscous, or any veges that you might think you need. Meat meals are provided, but vegetarian is up to you.

The farm here is 1910ha with big hills and rivers 1hr inland from Gisborne. We run a sheep and beef breeding station with 5000 sheep and 700 cattle. Richard runs the farm full time with help sometimes from his young family and a couple of staff. Amanda manages the household full time. We have 4 children Mia 7, Angus 5, Beau 3 and Jed 1. The right person would need to be comfortable around children and animals plus the madness this brings. The garden is in need of a tidy up Weeding, pruning, planting... We love a large vege garden which we aim to solely feed the family from. But we have just moved to the property and need to get this sorted! General cleaning duties around the house, plus helping with cooking and prep and if experienced some painting.
We have maintenance on farm buildings to carry out as well. Often there is help needed on farm too.
Definitely the right helper needs to be good with kids as some help will be required with them. It would be great if you have so... more inside

LOOKING FOR HELP ASAP- 10th February

Kia ora. We are busy with 3 young children, big gardens and a large property. We would appreciate any help in the garden or with firewood, painting, preserving, cleaning or even just a playing with the kids. We also have some animals to look after.

We will provide homegrown organic meals and independent sleepout accommodation in return for 4-6 hours work (depending on how physical it is) per day. This does not include doing the dishes as we expect that you do that to help with meals. We can cater for vegetarians.

We are 10 mins to the beach and just down the road from the marae. We have bikes you can use. We speak some Maori and can introduce you to some parts of Maori culture. And hopefully we have the chance to show you around this beautiful and wild part of Aotearoa! Nau mai haere mai. Welcome.

Hamish and I live 10 minutes out of Gisborne in the Ormond village on our lifestyle block along with our four children, dog, two cats, and various other animals. We also have a citrus orchard which we are always looking for help with. Ideally we enjoy hosting girls who are willing to become part of the family and help out in the orchard as well as gardening and maybe some of the housework. Sometimes we are just happy that you are outside playing with our two youngest children. We grow quite a bit of our own food, and enjoy being able to go out to the garden and harvest dinner. We provide your own bedroom in the house and all your meals in return for 3 to 4 hours help per day, which is flexible if you want to have a whole day to go off and explore. We are very easy going and so far have had great experiences with everyone we have hosted so far.

"WOOFING ON THE EDGE OF THE EARTH"

This is a unique chance to live and work on one of the most eastern farms of the world.

Definitely a Must-Do for any kind of traveler.

My variety of things to do is big, like help running a campground as well as the farms, or with a bit of leisure time you can go fishing, or walk along the beach, or walk up the hill to see old Maori Pa sites.

On the farm, we feed and herd the animals, drive the quad and mower, have a lot of other experiences and cook if you like.

So it is everything except boring woofing on the edge of the earth.

Only one requirement is necessary, I expect you to bring a serious working attitude along. Everything else I am keen to teach you.

You will live with me on the farm, enjoying my tasty food and learning basic Maori words.

The best thing, you see THE FIRST SUNRISE IN THE WORLD for FREE while you are staying here.

So come and experience the farm feeling for a few days or weeks or longer if y... more inside
