    Description

    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.

    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
