Our horse agistment property is located in Brookby, a beautiful rural area 25 minutes from Auckland Airport, and 35 minutes drive from Auckland City centre.

On our farm we provide grazing and equestrian facilities for 18 horses (most of them are privately owned by other people). We also run approx 20 beef cattle and sheep.

Our Helpx jobs include weed control, fencing, tree trimming, general gardening, general manual labour and house cleaning. Please note you will not work directly with horses or other farm animals, unless you are very experienced and confident.

We ask for 4 hours work per day in exchange for accommodation and meals. Or 2 hours per day if you wish to provide your own food. We are flexible with working hours and days (eg if you want to work extra hours during the week then take the weekends off, that is fine with us).

As our farm is approx 15 kms from the nearest public transport, our HelpX workers must have their own vehicle. Clevedon Village is a 5 minute drive away, with cafes and basic necessities. There is plenty to do in the area including hiking, mountain biking, beaches within 15 minutes' drive, and local vineyards.

Accommodation is provided in a 1-bedroom cabin on the farm, with its own small kitchen/lounge area and deck with farm views.

Please contact us by email only.
