  • Description


    I'm a woman farmer with 3 kids, the youngest in her teens. I have cattle and love to work with them. We have 5 small dogs and sometimes puppies.

    The kids like to be with the horses and also help on the farm. We've had guests from around the world many times before and think it's exciting to learn about culture, food and language. We offer to guests our hospitality and friendship :-)
