Amanda (my wife) and me are in our mid fifties but are very young at heart. We have a small 35 Hectare farm with a 2 hectare lake in the Vienne France. We have 100 sheep, about 25 pigs, a small herd of alpaca's, a few goats some dogs and the usual chickens. We have just started hay making, sheering the sheep and alpacas and have to finnish some building all work before September. So if you would like to give us a hand between now and the end of August drop us a line.
