    With children and a farm you never know what could happen.

    We are looking for help with the children. Layla is 9yrs old , Cooper is nearly 5 and Freya 3 and light house duties
    We would lovewould to have somebody helpto get the kids ready for school, help with homework, cook some meals and help keep the house clean!
    Our house is a whirlwind of kids, pets and love.
    I need help to free up some time to go work on the farm and admin work. But with your help we can all farm together :)
    Sometimes I work off farm and need a babysitter for the children

    We like to have somebody who is willing to help support our family, in all we do. Some times you will have to be bossy just like Mommy
    the kids love outdoors and to help on the farm
