Hi travelers and explorers,
We would love some help from end of august, but we are always ready to host you anytime of year. So just let us know what suits you.
We are in the Wairarapa Wellington region. Nearest town is Masterton. Close by are also three other towns. Our nearest city is Wellington. Train between.


We are a family of 5. We have three children at school. We have 2 horses(hunters), 1 puppy and 1 cat (she lives mostly outside) and two guinea pigs and a rabbit. Veggie gardens for kitchen and paddocks for the horses. The work is a bit of housework and gardening and pet care and dog walking. We all go to work and school so you are not surrounded by people all day!
We live in the countryside by a river, great for walks and swimming. We don't live on a working farm but do have a farm in another area. (You do not need horse knowledge.) If you can drive on the left or have your own car, it is helpful but not essential. We go to town every day and so does... more inside

It does not mean i work long days i start work at 8am and Ben takes girls to school on motorbike as school is at bottom of farm. Either I pick up girls on my way back or ben gets them and brings them to house. I work 2 days a week.

We have pet calves, hens, and farm dogs all are cute and many helpers fall in love with Ted a beardie/huntaway breed of dog. He is always getting pats and is our most photographed pet.

We live on a sheep, beef, dairy and deer farm. Ashhurst is about 15 minute drive.
palmerston north and Feilding are both 30 minute drive from our home. it is not essential to have a car I can pick you up from Palmerston north, Feilding or Ashhurst.

4 hectares of which 1 hectare is a beautiful formal heritage rose garden, nursery and workshop venue. Another ha is a neglected pear orchard we want to expand and rejuvenate and have started adding lasagna beds in some of the rows.

We will be adding polytunnels and market gardens in the near future along with some natural building (earth, straw, etc) and slowly converting property to solar including e-powered farm equipment.

Jenny has been a Permaculture teacher in the past and we hope to be running courses on organics, permaculture and natural building in the medium term.

Current work involves propagating roses, helping with garden maintenance, establishing new vege beds, building greenhouse/out buildings, pruning fruit trees, establishing understorey plants in orchard.

Have had some really helpful WWOOFers in the last few weeks doing tree maintenance, gardening, nursery work, planting etc.
