Another great house sit for me by Farm Minders. Rex and Marilyn give me great piece of mind that I know my house and animals are safe when I am travelling. Thank you."

Michelle Martin, Te Kura road Otane

"My husband and I live on a five acre lifestyle block with two horses, two cats, two heifers and six sheep in Central Hawkes Bay.

We went to Europe of 4 weeks in 2019 and came home to a very tidy and clean house. Rex fixed my fences for me and erected a fence I needed finishing (@ quite a reasonable hourly rate).

They mucked out the paddocks weekly for me, mixed feed and hard fed my horses, made sure all of the stock were well watered, and the cats didn't even know we'd been away.

We both had a very relaxing holiday knowing the house and the animals were being well looked after. I will definitely use them again in the future."

"Rex and Marilyn are very loved by my pets and I couldn't have asked for anyone better.
Honest and trustworthy 100%
My house was kept well and very tidy
My cat just loved her Marilyn cuddles
I had a range of pets, Rabbits, bird, cats a large range of pet and working dogs.
As well as all that they were feeding the last of our calves, they coped like a natural.
I look forward to having them again and I'm sure my pets can't wait either.

"We found farm minda services Rex and Marilyn absolutely wonderful
and did everything perfectly as asked and pets and animals were well taken care of ,for the 8 weeks that we were away.
One big thing they did was to keep us informed while we were away,
Which gave us great confidence and peace of mind we were able to relax knowing all was good back home.
So if you are looking for a trustworthy and reliable farm minda or house sitter
I highly recommend Farm Minda Services to you."

Barbara Hall, Hawkes Bay

"WE found Farm minda services to be someone that genuinely
cared and took ‭ ‬their ‬ job seriously and with being an Ex farm manager
Rex knew the importance of looking after animals.
On return from our 10 weeks holiday we found the house clean and tidy and that pets
and livestock had all been taken care of.
Also the gardens looked amazing, not a weed to be seen, as I knew there were some there when we left. I will be telling all our friends of Farm Minda Services and their excellent ‬ service."

James Cradock, Hawkes Bay

"Rex & Marilyn Farm Minda Services are very competent & trustworthy house sitters and farm mindas’. They looked after our home and pets for over 3 months while we were away on holiday, so I can highly recommend them to you."
June Mendez, Wanganui

"Hi Rex and Marilyn, Farm Minda Services
Just a note to say what a pleasure it was for us to have you look after our lifestyle block for two months. Not only did you confidently and competently care for our animals and property while we were away but you welcomed us home with a wonderful home-cooked meal. And the dog loved you so much after she had welcomed us home she sat on the couch with you!
I would highly recommend your services and certainly use them again in the future."
