Farm - 45 minutes drive from Auckland Central

We are looking for 2 Volunteer helpers (5 hours per day)

Must be happy doing outdoor physical work like weeding, painting fences, general maintenance jobs, and if happy to, helping with the horses/feeding out etc.

We race and breed thoroughbred race horses on 20 acres/8 hectares in Karaka 45 minutes from downtown Auckland, 25 minutes from AKL Airport and 15-20 minutes to the train station in Papakura.

We always have things that need doing on the farm in addition to helping with the horses, and plenty of general maintenance like fence painting, tree trimming, water blasting etc.

We are able to offer 2 meals (lunch & Dinner) and accommodation in exchange for up 5 hours help per day/ 30 hours per week.

Would suit two friends or couple to come and stay.
We have a separate Cottage for you to stay in. Wifi at the house, and meals at the house. Our other helpx guests have enjoyed conversations over dinner to help with learning kiwi English, before travelling about NZ. We like to eat well so the meals are good!

My partner and I have travelled extensively and love catching up with people from around the world. We have cats and a dog - Ruby the Hungarian Vizsla, and of course horses, young foals mares and resting racehorses.

We have had some great Helpx people from France, Belgium, England and Chile, who have all helped brilliantly on the farm and at the beach house.

Karaka is horse country, with the national horse sale yards located nearby. We are 5 minutes by car to local shops/market/local cafe, 15 minutes to Papakura and 45 minutes to downtown Auckland in non peak traffic.

Happy to drop visitors at the train station.
