Neville and I have a 32 acre lifestyle block situated 21km's north west of Blenheim. We are a 10 minute drive from the township of Renwick; 30 minutes from Picton and close to a number of Marlborough's popular wineries.
We have on our property 10 chickens, 4 cattle, 4 goats and 7 sheep. The chickens will need feeding daily and the vegetable garden will need watering daily. We would like a mature couple who have had previous experience with feeding and moving farm animals.
Marlborough has lots to offer the visitor with it's wineries, sea, rivers, shopping, cafes, theatre, swimming pool, bush walks, and scenic drives.
House situated in a stunningly beautiful valley.
People relaxed, positive and friendly, no fuss. Made us feel very welcome.
Animals and paddocks fun and easy to care for.
Very friendly and helpful neighbours - a special thanks to Craig who was always available for support and backup if needed.
Enjoyed the 3 weeks house- and pet sitting.
God experience for our young son who enjoyed the friendly animals especially the contact seeking pigs.

Sharyn & Neville were wonderful hosts. They had a lovely spare room ready for when we arrived and even cooked us dinner on two seperate occasions.
Their instructions were thorough and they were easily contactable when necessary, however they were also confident enough to allow us to use our judgement and it was a fantastic learning experience.
We would highly recommend anyone going to visit the farm, it is beautiful and Sharyn and Neville are great!
