    We have a 6 acre small holding, growing our own fruit, meat and vegetables on the outskirts of Martinborough.

    We also run a small preserves business and host farm tours.

    We run sheep, cows, pigs, goats, hens, geese, ducks, donkeys, dogs, cats, and rabbits and are working to set up a food forest.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We can provide transport from or to Featherston, the nearest railway station. Our place is in easy walking distance from many of the area's finest vineyards, and the centre of Martinborough. We are easy going, late 50, early 60s, but still can put in a full day's work on the farm.
