Need HelpX workers as soon as possible in August to help out with work in our commercial orchard. The role will be 4 hours of work helping our Orchard Manager with a winter pruning in exchange for meals and accommodation.

We are located on the outskirts of Auckland in a rural area, opposite a pine forest which is great for outdoor pursuits such as walking, biking or horse riding. Within the surrounding area are local wineries and the beach. We are 5-10 minutes drive to local villages, and 15 minutes drive to a newly-built shopping mall. We are 30 minutes drive from the city of Auckland, in non peak-hour traffic.

The property consists of extensive gardens, a tennis court, a pond, a lake, a chicken coup, two paddocks, a home orchard and vegetable garden, and a commercial persimmon orchard. It has been used for functions such as weddings, and movies.

The house is a two storey New Zealand replica villa, country style farm house, with downstairs guest accommodation consisting of a large bedroom with bathroom facilities. We have wireless internet service, and good mobile phone reception.

Living with us are our two daughters, along with our pets which include a dog, a horse and some farm cats!
