  • Description


    I would be particularly interested in hearing from any volunteers with experience of database design and blogging
    Im afraid my IT skills are appalling so i really need some help 😁

    I am renovating a run down farm to create my dream home, which i share with a small menagerie including horses alpacas sheep goats turkeys ducks chickens dogs a cat and a parrot. At the moment we about to start bailing hay so someone who can handle hard physical labour would be ideal right now.
    There is always maintenance around the farm, machinery to fix and animals to care for so always plenty to do.
    In return for help I offer your own flat/space, food and help to improve your English.
    Wifi is a available but is not unlimited.
    The farm is in a rural setting and only 10 mins walk from the nearest village.
