This is a precious opportunity for a true New Zealand experience that is authentic and immersive. The incredible views, warm hospitality, sharing of knowledge and insights will impress even the most experienced traveler. Add to that a gourmet lunch catered by Middlehurst’s professional chef. We can’t wait to share Middlehurst Station with you.
Middlehurst Station is one of New Zealand’s original high country runs. It covers 16,550 hectares in the Upper Awatere Valley, Marlborough at the top of the South Island.
Middlehurst extends right to the top of the rugged Inland Kaikourā Range. It’s classic high country, ranging in altitude from 550 meters to 2,500 meters. The homestead is at 800 meters. The station’s other boundaries are the Awatere, Tone and Winterton Rivers.
It is the ideal country to raise merino sheep – whose fleece is used to create soft, luxurious, warm and durable fabrics used in international brands like Icebreaker.
They also have their own meat brand – Middlehurst delivered. This concept was born out of a desire to bring 100% Merino Lamb direct to consumers.
Middlehurst’s aim is to establish a sustainable, productive family farming business. They want to make sure high country traditions are maintained and passed on – and to have fun while doing it.
