Our farm is 2 hrs south of Auckland by car and 1.3 hrs north of Tauranga and is sits on a Peninsula between Onemana and Whangamata, fringed by virtually untouched white sandy beaches, 130 acres breeding mainly Scottish Highland and Friesian dairy cattle. For the Aquarian the region is a Mecca for surfers, excellent scuba diving, fishing etc. For the outdoor explorers numerous beach and bush walks in the region.

Enjoy sharing stories and experiences. In return for your ‘willing’ :) contribution of 4-5 hours of generally light work which varies from working out on the farm with the animals, gardening, pruning to occasional domestic chores in wet weather. I provide breakfast and lunch materials which you prepare yourselves, evening meals we share together. The accommodation is independent, private and is very warm and cosy with great views. There is good internet, washing machine and other creature comforts There are books, DVD’s, ping pong, great walks, private spaces for reflection and good fishing from the beach where we often catch fish for dinner, 'as fresh as it comes'
I request non smokers and importantly fun and energetic people who genuinely want to help out and have a great farm experience, this is a shared experience which I hope you will enjoy and take forward with you. I don't take woofas under 25. To all those wonderful under 25’s sorry :(
