Tumble Downs gardenHello, we are Wendy and Roger - the people behind Tumble Downs. Tumble Downs is our affectionate nickname for our home in the lovely countryside of Marlborough, New Zealand. Here we try to live a simple and sustainable lifestyle.

We grow as much of our own food as possible (organically as much as possible) and preserve what is grown, we make do or re-use and recycle, we are learning more about home remedies and the use of plants for healing, we make our own household cleaning products, skincare, soaps etc. We rarely buy new but will source what we need secondhand. 

We are a middle aged couple with adult children, 2 rowdy dogs and a cat. We only have a 1/4 acre section but it is a food production garden, we also have chooks, bees and worms.

Tumble Downs with loveOur obession with soap making has led to an interest in selling them and hopefully filling a void in the Blenheim market for natural, locally made products. We currently sell from home, through Yealands Wine Cellar Door, Awatere Info Office, Anita's Organics and Gecko Cafe & Artisan Store in Blenheim.
