Small Organic Farm in Kauaeranga Valley

Description: UPDATE: We have found people to stay with us until around January next year (2022). After that we will be looking for a new couple to join us, so feel free to get in touch and perhaps pop over for a cup of tea, if this might be of interest to you 🙂 Hello! We are looking for a couple to come and live on our small organic farm in the Kauaeranga Valley, just outside Thames. We are two households living on the land and sharing the work and produce from our large garden and well-established fruit orchard. We also look after two cows, twelve chickens, twenty ducks, a small dog and three young children! We strive to garden in a way that improves the soil health and biodiversity, while providing us with almost all our fruit and veg for the year and surplus to give away in the community. We'd love to share this with another couple who are also interested in organic gardening, working on the land and working together. We have a small cabin available for accommodation (here's a video showing the cabin and a younger version of two of us when we first came to live in it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CsA4nHsynS0). The rent is simply helping with work around the farm and in the garden (approx 8hrs each per week), and we're looking for people to stay for between 6-12 months, with the possibility of longer if it's a really good fit. Please get in touch if you might be interested, we'd love to hear from you. Sarah, Tom, Nancy and Eric
