  • Description

    Description

    We live on the outskirts of a small market town and would like some help on our smallholding. We grow fruit and vegetables and we keep chickens. At various times we need help outside with the vegetables and garden, small building projects and diy, and also with housework, cooking and decorating. My 28 year old daughter lives in a caravan on site but has a full time job. My partner is slightly disabled, and I have arthritis in my hands and had an operation on my back earlier this year so we need some extra muscle . It is a good area for walking and cycling. The town (with several pubs, supermarket etc) is in walking distance, and there are buses to Hereford, a small city 20 miles away. Accommodation is in caravans and a summerhouse. You would eat with us in the house of course. Washing machine and wifi internet access are available in the house.
