We farm 300 hectares of medium to steep hill country, 25 kms north of Taumarunui (closest shopping center), running sheep, cattle and deer. We have a 30 year old rambling 2 hectare (approx.) garden that always requires some work and this is where volunteers will spend most of their work time. While not fully organic, chemicals are avoided especially in the vegetable garden. We are located right at the western end of the Pureora Timber Trail, one of the better known cycle trails in the central NI. We are an hour from Whakapapa Ski Field on Mt Ruapehu & the Tongariro Crossing, an hour from the southern end of lake Taupo, 20 minutes from the Whanganui River in Taumarunui, and an hour from the Waitomo Caves. Own transport is an advantage.
We have young adult children who have flown the nest. We enjoy meeting new and interesting people of all ages.

Hello,
We are a dairy farming couple who live ten minutes north of Taupo on the Rotorua road. We are looking for some helpx travellers to come and help us with general house work, gardening, cooking and some farm work if needed.
We are looking for people who are experienced in gardening and will use their initiative around the home to help out.

We have 2 spare double bedrooms with your own bathroom, and will give you 3 meals a day - in return for this we would require 4.5hrs work a day.

As we live ten minutes out of town your own transport would be required.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Tim and I have 3 children of whom are mainly away at boarding school and University. We have a large garden and would like help to keep on top of it. I would also appreciate some help with housework as we both work full time in our own business which leaves little time for all the "other stuff", though the gardens do take priority.

We're easy going and both travelled extensively in our 'youth' so certainly appreciate what backpacking is all about.

We live close to town, 10 minutes walk, and the beautiful lake and would have two bedrooms available at most times.
