We live on a sheep and beef farm just out of Cheviot. We are about ten minutes drive from the coast (Gore Bay, a great surfing spot). We've got 2 lovely house dogs, 1 retired sheep dog, 2 horses, 2 donkeys, 2 kunekune pigs, a pet sheep and 4 cats. Then there are the 4500+ sheep and lambs and 3-400 cattle and calves on the farm.

There is work on the farm, there is work looking after the animals at the house.

There is lots of work to do with cutting up the fallen trees from the recent winds so if you can use a chainsaw that would be great. If not, there is branch tidying work . The garden also needs lots of attention. More than just weed pulling, if you feel like getting creative with the landscaping, we can give you a project.

Anyone who enjoys cooking will be well utilised!

Bryan runs Harris Meats, which is located on our farm. If you don't eat/like meat, then you may not like our place. If you do, then you will be amazed at how good the meat here is, and... more inside
