Martinborough Manor is a 20 acre working farmlet and orchard situated on the outskirts of Martinborough wine village, right next to the Martinborough Golf Course. It is the home to Martinborough Manner, crafters of fine jams and preserves for the New Zealand market.

We have lots of animals for you to feed and pet as you wander around our orchard farm. Hear how lots of them are actually working for their living as part of the Martinborough Manner team.

All our animals are very tame and most love to eat from your hand. In season you can milk a cow or a goat.
