About the workproject

We need 2 volunteers

We run a 420 cow dairy farm alongside a native tree nursery. With big properties there is never a lack of jobs from milking, planting, gardening, helping with calves as well as much more. Get the chance to learn to ride a motorbike, get up and close to cows, pigs, chickens and sheep while getting you hands dirty.

Host since




We are used to having a lot of different nationalities working with us in the farm so even if we don't understand the words we are pretty good at figuring out what is being meant

We are a family of 5 on a third generation farm with Gran and Grandad still very much a part of our family/farming life.
We love farming and everything that goes with it including the mud while it's raining or the dust while its dry.
The three children are also very much part of the farm, helping out with the calves and even occasionally milking
