At the moment there is sheep work looming. Some wool shed work perhaps. Definitely staining of fences and general help on farm and in the house.

There is plenty of friendly animals,
Mount Adde is a family Hill Country Farm, breeding fine wool Corriedale sheep, beef cattle,

Greg is the son of Helen and Ron.

Greg has shifted into the main house and could use some help in gardens house for the right person.

We are a sheep and beef farm with a vineyard. Our farm is situated in the lovely Awatere valley with beautiful views and you will be welcomed into the family.

Prefer a week at , but will accept shorter times,absolutely non smoking and drug free.
We are about 30km south of Blenheim and 6km from the township of Seddon, and 4km from state highway one, South island. So it is easy to pick you up in Seddon or if it suits Blenheim.

Check the website for photos and an idea of our farm and family.
Prefer single people for now.

Accommodation is usually with Helen & Ron in town but could also be with Garry & Kris our onsite team,as no stand alone accommodation as yet.

We are a family owned business that takes pride in the way we farm, always looking for ways we can improve the health efficiency and viability and diversity of our business, animals, and the natural environment, therefore increasing the sustainable and responsible and ascetic values of a family farm.
