We run a family farm and vineyard in the famous Awatere Valley which has been in our family for 120+ years. We farm sheep and grow crops. We also have two small blocks of Sav Blanc grapes. My three children (15 yrs, 20 yrs, 23yrs) live here and also my elderly mother, so it's very much a family affair ! We are a very active family so love all outdoor activities and our lifestyle here.

You will get free accommodation and meals. You will also get a typical kiwi experience on a farm and get to partake in a wide range of tasks involved in running our farm. We are a very active and outdoorsy family, so you will also be invited to partake in our weekend adventures (if you wish) and explore what Marlborough has to offer!

Because we farm and have grapes we get very busy at a lot of seasonal times. We are happy to find tasks that suit your strengths and preferences where we can. But some of the main tasks will be general trellis maintenance and working with young vines in the vineyard. Helping with stock (drenching , shearing , feeding). Gardening, painting, cooking, planting native trees .

On your time off you can explore Marlboroughs beautiful outdoors and wine culture . On our door step we have some beaches , the Marlborough sounds, mountains, hiking and biking trails, places to kayak, surf, swim (in summer). In winter we are 2 hrs from the local ski field. We live in the heart of New Zealand's wine production, so there are a lot of wineries to visit .You will be expected to work 5 hours a day 5-6 days a week ( we are pretty flexible and will negotiate with you as we do get busy at times). We live 30min from Blenheim (the main town here) so it would be ideal if you had your own transport, but we are happy to pick you up off the bus and offer a ride to town when we can.
