    What else ...

    Typically we would ask someone to help with us maybe 4/5 hours a day, then at weekends and evenings they could do whatever they like. We usually have something fun planned with friends or family, weekends away or out in the city and you are more than welcome to join the more the merrier. We are quiet active, we swim run and go to the gym or go to the beach or meet friends, you definitely wont be bored if you choose to work and live with us :) our farm is not a business ☺️
