Greetings from Karen and critters.

Bending Tree Donkey Farm is a small hobby farm with friendly animals.I have so enjoyed the young travelers/helpers that have contributed to the sanctuary here. A peaceful place. We are spray free so be prepared for weeding.I have a few calves,two goats sheep, lambs, ducks, hens,Thomas the cat and the six donkeys all with different personalities and fun to be with.You will earn how to care for the donkeys with grooming' caring for hooves, some training and walks. If you have a good heart and enjoy animals this is the place for you..

Maungaturoto is a small village with the usual shops, two cafes and organic shop/cafe.It`s an easy walk or there are two bikes for your use. We work mornings 4 hours starting at 7.30. Happy to offer days off if you wish to explore around.

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'.

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 just 50metres away. 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,
