Just had a cancellation, is anyone near sunny Marlborough and wants to come and join us? Spring in the orchard means mulching, weedeating, plum thinning, lots of jobs getting the place sorted before harvest starts in December.
Come and check out what it means to make a living off the land. Couples or singles, we'd prefer two week stays but at the minimum one week.
Accommodation is in the "blueberry cottage,' a simple self-contained flat that is part of the packhouse across the lawn from our house. It has two bedrooms, a bathroom, a kitchen/dining room, computer and wifi. I stock the kitchen with good ingredients and between those and the orchard/gardens you assemble your own breakfast. We start at 8.30 am and work for four hours (some helpers get involved and work longer, but that's up to you and not required). I make lunch at the house for everyone, and your afternoons are your own. I'll keep the larder stocked with whatever food you like, we don't eat much meat but can supply it, mostly you'll make your own dinners but when time and energy allows it we have dinner together at the house. We have bikes for your use and are surrounded by wineries... To make things easier for us we would ask if you can come and go on a Monday.
