Our wee rural Croft is situated on the Tutukaka Coast, outside of Whangarei; surrounded by pastures, paddock, and bush; with plenty of walking tracks out the back gate and a string of beaches starting a 5-minute drive down the hill. We aim for sustainability and a low impact footprint on the land.
We have raised bed gardens, terraces, orchards, ducks in the pond, chickens and 2 young dogs, a sacred grove, native bush, and a babbling brook.
Accommodation may be a sleep out, the boat house, a room in the main house or a yurt. Must be happy to work independently on specific jobs.

There is always something to do here and we could use some help: skills, and knowledge with
- carpentry, painting, gardening, cooking, cleaning and animal upkeep, gardening and landscaping.
- One yurt is up, two to go and finish out with mud brick courtyard,landscaping,toilet block, etc.
- If you would like to experience the wild NZ bush whilst learning how to trap Possums there is an opportunity here.
- Our HelpX'er said learning to drive the digger was the most fun.

Your hosts are well-traveled ex-superyacht crew learning to live on the land. We eat mostly vegetarian with the random, wild turkey, wild pig, duck or stew in the mix. We enjoy sharing table and stories. We speak some spanish. Alli teaches yoga 2 nights a week at local halls and you are welcome to join in, cost is 12NZ per class.

Housekeeping of your accommodation, the spaces you share and washing up after meals is part of living contribution around the farm.
Please leave your accommodation as you find it or better on departure.
