  • Description


    I'm a former helpxer and wwoofer travelling around Spain and France on bicycle. I'm 32years old. My project is a new smallholding as it has only been going 3 years located in historic cob barns near the town of hatherleigh. I grow vegetables and seedlings and sell them at local market. I have 40 sheep, 4 pigs, a dog, two cats and chickens to take care of. As it is still new, things are growing and plenty of building work and carpentry that I need a hand with. I'm lucky to have artists musicians and farmers who are neighbours and we share jobs like bottling cider, baling hay etc.
    We have been building alot in cob this year as you can see our walls in the barn etc
    It would be great for people with similar interests, creative hopefully as also have a friend staying who is a florist and photographer, please note this is beautiful rural location (Highampton) and as such driving license or your own car would be advantageous. There are bikes here which you welcome to use, nearby is the ruby trail and route from meeth to braunton is great for cycling.
