Moon Over Martinborough: From Michigan to the Wairarapa

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:09 pm on 17 June 2013

How an American city boy became a Kiwi farmer. The two city boys from America became "Ruralpolitans" in 2006, moving from Wellington to a 20 acre property in Martinborough. It wasn't just the fresh air and slower pace of life that appealed to them, it was the 500 olive trees on the property. Not long after moving to Martinborough, Jared started a blog about the disasters and discoveries of two novice farmers called Moon Over Martinborough. Now the stories are in a book by the same name.
