WWOOFing at Tuki Vineyard

At Tuki Vineyard we sometimes offer accommodation for volunteers who wish to 'WWOOF'. WWOOFing is about Living and Learning on Organic Farms. WWOOF provides volunteers hands-on educational and cultural experiences, learning about what is involved to grow produce and animals organically while living with local families and joining in the daily farming and family activities.

We provide WWOOF volunteers with free accommodation in a separate stand-alone building that has its own bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and living room. You can see it here. Please ignore the prices on the website - wwoofers stay for free.

Since we provide great self-contained accommodation with your own cooking facilities, we do not supply your food. You buy your own food and make your own meals, but we like to invite you to join us as our guests for dinner or a BBQ on some evenings during your stay. We hope you like to taste great wine!

Each WWOOFer normally volunteers about 4 hours of time for every day that you stay. Things that WWOOFers typically do are 'odd-jobs' around the property such as weeding, painting, firewood, pruning hedges, fruit picking, mechanical weed-whacker, waterblasting, raking leaves, grubbing thistles, etc.

We don't accept single WWOOF volunteers - we only accept couples for safety and to keep each other company. And we only accept WWOOFers aged 20+ years of age. We prefer to take bookings for an initial 1 week stay and this may be extended for another week or two if we get on well and depending on how busy things are. We often don't know availability until last minute so it is best to contact us 1 - 4 weeks prior to your desired dates.

Our vineyard is located about 4km from the centre of Havelock North village, so we recommend that WWOOF volunteers have their own vehicle for transport to make it easy to visit local shops and cafes, and to explore the region. Otherwise you are welcome to borrow our bikes.
