Ata Rangi Ltd

Time for a Change

If you are looking to retire your whistle, or hang up your overalls, then you might be interested in grape-farming.

Just like on the farm, grape-farming involves tractors, machinery, fencing, cropping, irrigation, repairs and maintenance, cultivation, and plant husbandry.

Ata Rangi is on the lookout for a vine shepherd, with a broad range of skills. We currently farm 80,000 vine stock units (VSU) over 11 paddocks around Martinborough.

Unlike sheep and beef, vines don’t move, so no dogs needed. Just a good level of practicality, and energy.

We have a great, small team. Delicious coffee, and the hours are good for those who want a life outside of work.

Mostly 40 hours per week, mostly Monday to Friday, with extra work during summer/spring drenching (spraying), grape mustering (harvest), stock protection (frost), and dagging (trimming and plucking).

If a change interests you, then get hold of Braden on 022 343 0942 or
