On our 18 hectare spray-free property in the small town Kaeo in the far north of New Zealand we have about 9 hectares in regenerating native bush and 9 hectares orchard where we grow olives, mandarins, plums, feijoa, blueberries and a lot of other fruit trees. We need help all year round with general orchard work and during the harvest seasons: picking fruits and pressing olive oil. Our harvest seasons are: Plums from December to February, Olives from April to May, Mandarins `Encore` from October to December, Mandarins `Miho` and Feijoa from April to May, Blueberry from January to February.

We are a couple in our mid sixties and beside English we also speak German and Vietnamese. On our property we have a lot of bird life including chickens, ducks, guinea fowl and of course native birds. We also have 4 house cats. In the orchard there is a modern self-contained apartment with views over the Whangaroa Harbour. This apartment is available for your stay. We offer accommodation and meals in return for helping us with some work on the orchard. The InterCity bus stops in Kaeo and we can pick you up from the bus stop in town, if you have no vehicle. We live in an area which is 5 minutes drive away from Kaeo township.
