  • Description

    Description

    We are John and Gill, a couple here in the North East of bonny Scotland. John manages a farming business here while Gill is mainly responsible for food and nurture. We also live with one Collie dog, Harry (he is a proper sheep dog!). There is always something going on with plenty of requirement for hands on physical activities, by way of maintenance and gardening. There may be some farm work though it would be limited to non-machinery activity, but we would endeavour to give you a proper flavour of farming life.
    We have fantastic sea just a mile or so away, and walking and golf aplenty, along with whisky distilleries and castles.

    Help

    The help we would require would be mainly hands on stuff in the garden or maintenance round the farm buildings, and maybe a bit of cooking in the house. Can you paint, dig, do useful things and not get "oh so bored" too easily? If you fit this bill then get in touch please!
    Please note that we are not looking for any full time farm workers so if that is what you are looking for then we are sorry but we can't help.
