  • Help


    General help around the farm (pasture management, cleaning), house (cooking & cleaning) and garden (maintenance, weeding etc).

    While I would not consider babysitting per se to be part of the help required (we spend as much time as possible with our little girl). We would like people who are comfortable being around children and would be ok staying with our daughter for short periods eg: 30mins while I go for a run. Only if our daughter and you are comfortable with this.
