Myself Jane and partner Graham both now 60 but young at heart! We are both non smokers and do not have any smoking allowed anywhere in the house.
Graham works at a private school in Rochester Kent as head of grounds.
I do voluntary work from home for an internet based site assisting anyone who has lost their dog and work closely with a number of police forces if a dog has been stolen
We are both friendly and have in past had number of over seas visitors connected with family in New Zealand and friends of my son while touring the world- Australia & Hong Kong
We have 1 non aggressive dogs - a very active spaniel. Anyone staying must like dogs as he is very boisterous when he first meets you.
Sadly we no longer have our old GSD Ben seen in the photos.
We live just outside MAIDSTONE in Kent a very nice town- in an area called Allington- bus route to town or about half an hour walk.
We have broadband interent access available which you can use. Please just check on usage to make sure I am not near the limit
Emails etc do not do this.
I do not work as I have MS ( multiple sclerosis) but still able to walk around but get tired easily on off days. This means i am at home most days.
Graham would be working during the week.
Due to our early start workers are left to help them selves to breakfast and lunch when it suits their appetite and we all eat together for evening meal.
We own and operate a private 680 acre cattle and horse ranch in the scenic Okanagan high country near Vernon, BC. Our ranch uses natural, eco-friendly, holistic management practices to produce grass-fed beef and poultry products. We are a couple with a 4-year-old "home-schooled" child.
We are a 60s couple with grown children (who live elsewhere), and a large homestead with orchards, gardens, goats, dogs, cats, ducks, one turkey, and chickens. We live in the high desert of Northern New Mexico, and in addition to our hobby farm we enjoy summer hiking, winter skiing, and getting together with friends, neighbors, and family.
We live within bicycling distance of the town of Taos, in a rural area situated on a Western-facing hill that gives us views of 100 miles or more and the best sunsets in the West. We are surrounded by pinon and sagebrush and most evenings (reputedly 300 out of 365 a year) we look up into a star-filled sky. This spring eight baby goats were born to our six does. Our three large goldendoodle dogs enjoy watching the baby kids as they frisk and jump; they keep an eye on the ducks and chickens as well. Our three cats are more interested in prowling for birds or rabbits.
Next to the goat yard is a walled garden with raised beds that run on drip irrigation. We also have strawberry gardens, extensive raspberry beds, and fruit tree orchards, as well as rock gardens that hold more perennial beds of flowers and currants.
We enjoy meeting and interacting with young people who are engaged with the world and interested to experience new cultures and environments. We feel our homestead offers a good experience of life in our region that is closely tied to nature.
Taos is a special place. Although out of the way, and quite rural, its high mountain setting is called home by local Tewa pueblo residents who have lived here for 1500 or more years, by Hispanic families who came many generations ago, and by more recent Anglo settlers who were called by its rustic, barren beauty, its hiking and skiing trails, its scenic rivers, its big skies and memorable sunsets.
I have lived on my almond farm since leaving the uk in 2004 - i live on my own, with my 3 dogs and 1 cat- it is fairly remote with no nearby neighbours and an 10km journey into mora d'ebre for all shops/bars etc.
I have three married daughters in the uk and five grandchildren who I try to visit as often as funds allow
this is a mountainous region with stunning views and walks and the biggest skies I have ever seen!
