About the workproject

We need 1 volunteer

We are a 190 acre Dairy farm with small 100 cow herd and horses for leisure trekking and harness. Situated on the beautiful West Coast in the Bay of Plenty overlooking the ocean, there is lots to see and do in the area. We seek someone to help with 'once-a-day' milking and horse riding. Must be a capable horse rider. Cleaning and cooking skills are always a bonus!
We have our own vege garden and eat home-grown meat and often wild pork and venison. You will get the opportunity to experience NZ Hunting.
Also milk a small flock of goats and am experimenting with home-made goats cheese. We have a self-contained flat for volunteers to stay in.

My husband and I are keen farmers and love the outdoors. We have down-sized our dairy herd recently and enjoy hobbies such as hunting, fishing and horse riding. We enjoy the company of like-minded hard-working people.
