We would love for some more helpers to come and stay. We're flexible on the length of stay, we do ask for 4 hrs help during the day and help with the dishes after dinner in the evening. The work will be general tasks around the home and garden, we try to vary it during your stay so nothing becomes TOO mundane. If you have a specific skill then we are keen to utilise that so do contact us with what you may be able to offer.

We are a family of 6! We have a lifestyle block on which we try to support ourselves as much as we can! We produce our own power from a hydro unit in the river and get water from the river via a ram pump! Both interesting setups! We have our own bees, milking cows (all 3 currently in calf so not being milked at present) chickens and pigs (actually new piglets arriving soon but no pigs at this minute). We have vege gardens and establishing orchards. It's a good life, it truly is! Beautiful spot to enjoy nature.

We have 2 dogs that are family dogs and also dogs that my husband takes hunting.

The 'helpx' accomodation is a small but rather cosy caravan it has one standard single size bed and 2 seat/squabs that can be beds also. There is a nice outdoor bathroom near the caravan.

We do provide all meals, you can make your own breakfast (in our kitchen using our food...) and then join us for lunch and dinner, we tend to have a 'morning tea' as well... basically we just want you to feel at home.

Our home is small but we will be welcoming and you will be part of our family during your time with us, we tend to keep in touch with most of our helpx guests as so many have become friends.

Oh... and yes - we do have wifi!

Come stay!

Please no smokers and bring an awareness of Eco living - or willingness to learn about it.
