Our 12.9 hectare property is 10km's from Renwick, and 4 km's from State Highway 6. It consists of exotic/native trees and shrubs; pasture; orchard; chicken runs; and vegetable plots. We started 9 years' ago planting predominantly heritage fruit and vegetables organically for sale at the local Farmers' Market. Over the years we have added animals to the property and today we have 3 steers, 3 goats, 2 pigs, 3 calves, 32 hens, 2 roosters, 3 lambs and 4 chicks.

From September until May we need assistance with spraying, compost making, weeding, mulching, sowing, planting, propagation, brush-cutting, animals, building tunnel houses, and picking produce for the local Farmers' Market.

Accommodation is a tidy caravan placed in our orchard a short distance from our house. Food will be supplied for breakfast, lunch and dinner with vegetables/fruit available from our gardens. Some meals will be shared with us. Your working day starts at 8 a.m. and finishes at 1 p.m. with morning tea at 11 a.m. (1/2 hour). You are welcome to continue working after lunch but this is not compulsory. We invite Wwoofers who have a keen interest in gardening to apply. Non-smokers only please.

Our property is located close to the Wairau River approximately 20 km's from Blenheim. During your stay you can swim in the Wairau River (a 5 minute walk), visit the local wineries or National Parks on a bicycle (2 available) or walk our property and the local back roads.

On our property we have a number of BEEHIVES.
