PLEASE NOTE WE DO NOT REQUIRE ANY HELPERS AT THIS TIME.

We retired in early 2019 and sold our beef farm.

We live now on a 3ha block with olive trees and no livestock at all.

From time to time we may need house sitters to stay and look after our cats and dog.

There may be other times in autumn and early winter that we may need a helper or two to help with grounds maintenance.

In exchange for your help for four hours a day we offer you accommodation and meals in our home with your own separate bedroom and bathroom facilities. Wireless internet is available.

You must have your own transport as we are 5kms from the closest settlement at Matakana.

Please be aware that we eat meat and our meals usually include meat. We are not able to separately cater for vegetarians.
