  • Description

    Description

    I am 64 years old and have been hobby farming only for the last 10 years. I am divorced but maintain a good relationship with my ex wife, have 2 children married and 3 gorgeous grandchildren. Since 2012 I have even hosting volunteer backpackers and signing off their 417 visas whilst it was posible until September 2016 and must mention all (100%) who applied for their 2nd year were granted. For the last 3 years I've had volunteers whenever I needed help. The last person was in December 2018 for 8 days, a 21 yo girl from the Netherlands.
