    Help

    Some general experience on a farm would be helpful as would someone with welding/mechanical/building skills. A drivers licence would be handy. Cooking is optional. I am happy for anyone to take over my kitchen at any time. In times when the weather does not permit farming work, I have a garden with no garden beds and some out houses that require attention.
