  • Description


    The little farm is located half an hour out of Blenheim. A few cows, chickens, cats and horses. It suits keen experienced horse riders mainly but keen hikers or gardeners also welcome.

    Jobs include basic cleaning, painting, farm jobs, gardening, pruning, watering plants, picking up branches, feeding animals. You don't need experience in any of these things, a positive attitude is most valued.

    Comfortable accommodation mostly self contained but sharing shower and kitchen (open to sharing meals, or not).

    I like to take workaway guests to explore some of the more interesting spots of Marlborough especially on foot - hiking, or on horses (for experienced horse riders).

    Mandy is extensively travelled, having lived nine years in the Middle East. She has three horses, runs her own business separate from the farm, and previously worked as a teacher.

    We are also open to any suggestions about how your background could be a good fit with us. Suit those who like the quiet life. No public transport. I can pick up from Blenheim on arrival and take to town when I go.

    Strictly no smokers due to health as well as fire risk in the area. There is WiFi but can be slow. Mobile phone signal is there but not always great. Vegetarian/vegan welcome if you are willing to prepare some of your own food etc.
