Farm sitters and minders NZ
Jenny and Graham are a non smoking, married, retired couple, fully vaccinated, with our own unit in Christchurch, but love to be out enjoying the countryside and farm animals.
Available for house or farm sitting while you are away enjoying your holidays.
It costs you nothing, we bring our own food.
We enjoy the outdoors, visiting new places, tramping, biking, hunting, taking dogs for a walk and looking after animals.
Jenny loves to potter in the garden.
We are limiting our sitting stays to 10 days unless we can bring our house trained cat who will sleep in her cage in the laundry or similar room with her dirt box.
If it is close to Chch we can stay longer, leave her at home and travel back every couple of days to let her out and check her food.
We prefer life style blocks, farms, large or small in the South Island or any houses out of the city and towns.
Feeding cats, dogs, hens, pigs, sheep, cattle, horses etc.
Taking the dogs for a walk, moving a few farm animals or feeding out.
Watering and looking after the gardens etc.
We do have a web site which we are happy to share a link with you. It contains our information, photos from farm sits and references.
We have had experience with most types of animals,
Jenny having owned sheep and pig farms when she was younger and operated dog boarding and breeding kennels.
We even delivered pups at a recent farm sit.
We can handle covering horses, feeding bobby calves, moving and feeding out cattle and some lambing.
Graham having helped on sheep, cattle and deer farms, Haka Valley, View Hill Oxford, Parnassus, Pleasant Valley Geraldine.
We have looked after dogs and farm animals on Blue Mountain Station Fairlie, Rainbow Station Marlborough, Coleridge Downs Lake Coleridge and numerous farms and lifestyle blocks.
The benefits, knowing your house is safe, all the animals are fed, looked after and your house is treated as we treat ours.

Graham and Jenny - House-sitters EXTRAORDINAIRE is the best way to describe the farm sitting service of this exceptional couple!
They looked after our property for 3 weeks - we returned home to find the house absolutely sparkling - better than when we left, our animals didn't even know we had gone, our garden and lawns were looked after superbly! The hens were cared for expertly. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Graham and Jenny they are very trustworthy and extremely capable. Thank you both!!!!!
RONALD CRAIG: We were rapt with the attention our animals received from Graham and Jenny. They had extra work with the pony as he has laminitis and any special treatment was carried out with the health of the animal coming first on their list. House duties and gardening were first class (Jenny) and the end result just made the holiday even better for us. They are just a dream come true for any animal lover and we highly recommend them We have already booked them for next year. Merry Christmas Ron and Beryl
