We (David and Penelope) have 70 acres about 9 kms from the centre of Whangarei.
Our home is a converted cowshed that now looks like a traditional English farmhouse.gk

David has a business making cast-iron wood stoves.You can check out our website, and if you watch the second video -the Heritage stove- you will see a bit of our home.

We run some cattle, sheep and have three horses on the farm. Penelope is currently teaching her new horse to pull a cart, and all 3 horses are ridden. Seth, a 17 year old gelding, is suitable for learners.
We have hens, ducks and a border collie called Shiloh.

We have been married for 42 years and have 5 adult children and 15 grandchildren:)

We offer wholesome homemade food, oven baked bread, good coffee and comfortable accommodation in return for 4 hours help a day.

***UPDATE!!*** Wanted: Someone to pick macadamias. We have a small number of macadamia nut trees that we want to strip.

Also, we would appreciate help with our large veggie garden.

We are non-smokers, but will take helpers who smoke as long as it is done outside. We are non-vegetarians.

If you enjoy a modern way of life, our place is probably not for you. We don't have a television but do watch movies. We both enjoy music, playing the guitar and singing, and Penelope teaches the violin.
If you like the idea of experiencing more of a slower-paced, olde-worlde way of life, give us a call! :)
