Greetings from Karen and critters.
Bending Tree is a small hobby farm with friendly animals, who like people, just arrive from different backgrounds.A peaceful place I have a few calves, sheep, lambs, ducks, chinese silkie hens, three legged cat who rules and the six donkeys all with different personalities and fun to be with. After volunteering in a donkey sanctuary in Ireland I decided to breed donkeys here in NZ in my retirement and I love it.If you have a good heart and enjoy animal company this is the place for you..
Maungaturoto is a small village with shops, two cafes and organic shop/cafe.It`s an easy walk or there are two bikes.
Waipu Cove and Mangawhai beaches are 20 minutes away. Also the wonderful glowworm caves within 30 minutes by car free to enjoy. Feel like a cool swim in small waterhole only 5 k's away and free to enjoy.Spring is coming and so are the lams, ducklings and later the donkey foals.

I have fun animals to enjoy I am training donkeys and good to have help with this

Some flexibility with hours so you can have the option to work 4 hours in the morning and have the afternoon off to relax in exchange for accommodation and food.Another option is to work 2.5 hours per day and provide your own food this is fine. With this popular option you can work 4 hours one and have the whole next day off to explore.
Help with stuff like picking up donkey poo, feeding animals, gardening, small carpentry projects, fencing repairs weeding Mostly outside work.
Comfy room inside with own bathroom and wi-fi or cabin for privacy with two single beds no power but wi-fi. Have traveled a lot and still head off a couple of times a year, so enjoy meeting other travelers. You would need to be comfortable on your own if I go to Auckland for a day or two.

I can pick you up from the Brynderwyn bus stop. We are 90 minutes from Auckland,
