I am a divorced single male living alone on a small farm property. I have an extensive history in law-enforcement, having retired in 2010. I have a small acreage farm, presently I have only chickens and sheep on the property . I also run a small pedigree Ragdoll cattery as a hobby. I live about 3 kilometres from the main town, which is easily accessed by a walking trail nearby. I have a vehicle here, but due to insurance reasons, this vehicle is not available to visitors.
I have a very relaxed nature, drink alcohol only occasionally and don't smoke. My 2 children don't live with me. I have a neat and clean house, and have clean habits. I have returned to the workforce now in a professional role, but work only casually. There are a few occasions when I am required to work away, which then requires a lot of trust in any workaway visitor who may be staying here in my absence.
I am very open to hosting travelers who are honest, and of good character, in exchange for some light work/labor around the house and 2.5 acre property. Please understand that I would appreciate it if 'Workawayers' did not have guests back to my home during their stay here.
