We are in the process of moving so not able to welcome any help till Christmas.

We are a family with two lively boys (5 and 8), living and working on a large Sheep and Beef Station. As part of working here we get a house with a lovely garden and space for lambs, cats, dogs, calves and an old horse.

Our main objective is quality interactions for our children and we always welcome help with the house and various jobs around the place. The activities at home and on the farm varies depending on the season (harvest fruit and vegetables, firewood, spring clean, gardening, help at the local school and community events, etc) but there is ALWAYS two boys wanting to play. We are building a tree hut, play with the animals and go for walks over the farm and in the bush. In the summer we go swimming and fishing on the black sand beach at Port Waikato. We go to Pukekohe town a couple of times a week for groceries and Kindergarten. If you like to cook we would love to experience some of the food from your own country.

Mum and boys speak Swedish as well as English. We traveled a bit before having children and enjoy sharing our piece of New Zealand with visitors. Despite being very rural we are only a one hour drive South of Auckland airport. There is no public transport out here so you need your own vehicle or we can pick you up from Pukekohe train station on town days.

We can offer a QUEEN or TWIN guest room, WI-FI, Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and lots of different NZ-life experiences. We mainly eat a whole food diet and will introduce you to lots of traditional NZ dishes. There are many opportunities for walking and exercising and there is a lap pool nearby. On average we work 4 hours a day, sometimes less, sometimes more depending on the project and the weather. We are flexible if you want to work more one day and head off and explore the next. We can only accommodate Non-smokers. Minimum stay is usually 2 weeks. Looking forward to meet you!
