Jobs that need doing now could be any of the following depending on the weather! Gardening, walking the dogs, vaccuming, washing floors, cleaning the house, washing windows, mowing lawns etc.

We are on a small farm 10 minutes drive from Warkworth which is a lovely small town with shops, restaurants, cafes, wineries etc 45 minutes drive north of Auckland.
We are a couple in our 50's with two grown up children who live elsewhere.
It is a 20 minute drive to beaches or the movies.
We are approx 3km from the Te Araroa trail.

Work is 4 hours per day but we are flexible eg. you may want to do more one day and have a day off or some other arrangement.
We have cattle, sheep, pigs, horses, hens and dogs and cats so you will need to like animals.
Short stays would be best 4-7 days- longer if we have the work and we are all getting on :-)

We eat our own beef, pork and lamb and occasionally fish so may not suit a vegetarian. No smoking inside.
We provide 3 meals a day and snacks so you won't go hungry!
Wifi and own comfortable bedroom.

We don't go to Warkworth every day but could offer transport to and from when we go or even further afield at times.

If you are walking the Te Araroa trail and want to have a rest from walking for 2-3 days and do some work in return for accommodation and food we may be able to help.

If you are living in Auckland and want to get away from the city for a weekend it could also be possible that we could host you.
