About the workproject

We need 2 volunteers

We are a small family run Free Range Egg Farm situated about 10 minutes from Motueka and 30 minutes for Nelson at the top of the South Island on New Zealand - close to the Abel Tasman National Park. We are looking for someone to help establish an organic vegetable garden to enable us to become more self-sufficient as well as some general farm maintenance work.

I am married with 3 children (24,22 & 18), we have been on our farm for 1 year and have been working very hard on establishing our Free Range Egg business which is now growing that we are developing a second shed. We moved to NZ from South Africa 20 years ago and came from farming and have always want to return to the land. We have spent many years hosting International Students while living in the city. Now that our children are grown up we can now go back to what we love doing which is living the rural life. I enjoy cooking, gardening, horses and socializing.
