Lifestyle Farmers

Murrays Veterinary Clinic
Taieri Lifestyle Farmers Club was established to educate and support lifestyle block owners who live on the Taieri, but also greater Dunedin areas such as Port Chalmers, Waihola, Milton, Outram, Middlemarch and Mosgiel.

We meet twice a year for hands on workshops, which gives you the opportunity to have a go yourself, discuss any issues or questions you may have with our technical staff and receive great hints and tips when you own a lifestyle block.
