Ours is a rural property so it is very useful to have your own vehicle. We have gardens, orchards and potagers along with many acres of fields which farm horses or cattle.
Work here is garden, farm, or maintenance related. In return for a night of accomodation we expect 4 hours work. This work includes weeding, trimming hedges and fruit trees and mulching.
The accomodation you are offered is very suitable for couples or friends or a small family; a privately situated, modern 2br gite with chefs kitchen (appliances, crockery & utensils). The pantry contains cooking/bkfast basics. The separate bathroom has underfloor heating for winter and the bedrooms have electric blankets.
You are expected to be independent and provide and cook your own meals; usually there is some produce available in the gardens, certainly a variety of herbs and greens. There are many food outlets in towns 10kms north and south of our farm.
There are some beautiful places and walks of interest in our locality: Otaki River Estuary, Otaki Forks, the Paekakariki Escarpment, many beaches and open farms. The two nearest towns are Otaki and Waikanae. Just under 1 hour to drive to Wellington.
