I’m a hobby farmer who’s been building a farm from scratch for several years now. I’ve several different types of animals and enjoy gardening and orchard care.
I’ve Apple, pear, plum, cherry and apricot trees. As well as grapes, kiwis, blue berries, and raspberries. The garden is fairly large and set up to save water as much as possible. There is a fairly good sized greenhouse as well.
I raise Kune Kune pigs, jersey giant chickens, dexter cows, and have cats and dogs.
Cooking / shopping
I enjoy meeting people from different ways of life and having sharing my way of life. There is always lots to learn around my farm including but not exclusively animal care, construction, gardening, permaculture design and development, forestry.
There are animal chores to do daily, spending time with the animals so they maintain a quite disposition to people, gardening and harvesting, developing and building things around the farm, and some forestry projects. I try to accommodate specifics that people want to experience if possible
I’ve two rooms in my house for workers to stay, I’ve also a camper that people can stay in if they so choose. My house is open and shared with whoever comes through. Depending Day to day cooking is a shared responsibility.
Whenever there are gatherings and community events I will encourage and make arrangements for workers to go to those events so they can meet other locals and experience the local culture
