    We are looking for an individual or a couple to help prune apple trees and to winter tidy our smallholding. We have over 300 apple trees that need to be pruned. Pruning experience would be beneficial not essential. We can teach you how to prune the trees. You may also help with caring for our poultry - chickens, ducks, turkeys and guinea fowl. If an individual has building or maintence skills, this could be included. We need someone in January, February or March since pruning needs to be done in the winter when the trees are dormant.
