We are a easy going couple in our thirties who have a 16 acre farm that we brought nearly five years ago. As we now have a 4 year old gorgeous wee girl, and my partner works long hours in his family business, we could really do with some help on the farm to continue building our dream.
A friend of ours also lives here with his partner in his tiny house on the property.
We also have a couple of caravans and some cabins onsite.
We are a few minutes from the Kaipara harbour, 20 mins from Mangawhai beach, and half an hour from the famous Waipu caves and beautiful coastal beaches.
We started on our property with only a caravan and a bare block. We now have built a shack around our caravan and have some other infrastructure in place like large chook coups, gardens, compost toilet and compost bins, dirt bike track, woodshed, yards and more.
We have currently built some new cabins for us to live in and our shack we used to live in is now a self contained helper quarters, with kitchen, pool table, dart board and tv.
We could do with a hand with painting and other building type jobs/projects.
We all follow similar ideas for the farm trying to maintain a chemical, spray free paradise for us, our child and family.
We would one day like to be in a position to supply all our friends and family with spray free produce and organic meat etc to make sure everyone has health and well being.
I myself am a qualified naturopath, my partner owns a CCTV drainage company and is also a musician, and our friend who lives on the farm installs wormarator septic tanks for a local company.
We love to fish, garden, play music, ride dirt bikes, do yoga and meditation and love and laugh.
We have chickens, ducks, a horses, a pony, cows, huntaway dogs and four bengal cats. We have already done lots of planting of fruit trees and some waterways, lots of drainage on the property and we also have a valley of beautiful native bush.
Please join us in helping us live our dream if you enjoy good company, laughter, love and some good kiwiana experiences.
We could really do with someone to help us finish off the building of our cabin, just some trimmings etc, help clear our fence lines from grass etc, and help us collect and chop some wood and tend to our garden. We have tools for all of these jobs like chainsaw, axes, weed-eater and a brush cutter. I would also be interested in someone to help me with household chores and looking after my 4 year old girl so I might be able to do some work with my horse. We also always have little projects we are working on around the farm. I would suggest to bring a head torch and a pair of gumboots and in summer, a hat and some sunscreen. If you are vegetarian/vegan, or have allergies or conditions please let us know prior so we can arrange meals etc, and if you are gluten-free or dairy free etc, please bring specialised products with you, i.e plant milks, gluten free products, or be willing to pay something towards the food shopping, as we only supply standard supplies in the kitchen. You can have access to internet, but it is capped, so no extreme use.
