We breed sport horses Warmblood Holsteiner and WB TB X, & graze calves & cattle, and raise ducks. We are a 162 acre farm, next to the Puketi Forest near Kerikeri. We have hills, streams & ponds and are centrally located for sight seeing. Your own suite with toilet and shower, kitchenette with fridge, microwave and kettle etc. 25 mins to Kerikeri and 40 mins to Paihia in the Bay of Islands. You will be in a team of young people, and we can be flexible with hours so you can take time off in lieu to sight see. We ask for 5 hours work a day for accommodation and food. We have good and plentiful food here, as I am a chef! Chores focus on the horses, stable cleaning, paddock picking, grooming, weeding and fence clearing. Also can include planting, mowing, weed eating, hay making, cleaning, cooking, housework. Also, we have projects to get stuck into, that vary on the time of year. We take helpers for a minimum of 2 weeks. Your own transportation will be an asset as we are on a farm out of town and there are lots of great beaches and sights to see in Northland. We have other young people here, up to 4 at a time, and we have a large presence on the Wwoofing site with many, many recommendations, if you are a woofer too, go check that out as well.
** Note We do Farm Stay also, that is like AirBNB for people who want to get out of the town and experience a NZ farm lifestyle. Thanks Julia
