We are looking for someone to house sit a 15 acre hobby farm for approximately three weeks in September 2019 in Clevedon, approximately 15 kms from Auckland airport & 35 kms south east of Auckland.
There are numerous legs (of the fur and feather variety) living at our property as we have adopted some of the SPCA’s farm residents and have acquired other waifs and strays through word of mouth. Currently we have goats, sheep, hens, geese, ducks, turkeys, pigs, horses & four dogs. We usually have woofers on the farm who stay in seperate accomodation and they will feed the animals most days. However if you prefer to stay on the farm by yourselves then that is not a problem but you will be required to feed all the animals daily.
Ideally we would prefer someone who worked from home which would be similar to our routine, however this is not essential. The dogs do not require walking as they are able to roam around the gardens. They are all very friendly and enjoy human company.
In return we can offer two weeks of peace and tranquillity, fantastic views, a comfortable home, fresh vegetables (from glasshouse) and eggs. The house is situated approximately 2 kms from the village centre and a vehicle is a must for our house sitters. However for the right person(people) we will consider insuring our vehicle for driving into the village or vet emergencies etc. Clevedon village a selection of convenience stores, a medical centre, pharmacy and garage. Clevedon farmers market and village market (Sundays) are only a short drive from the property.
