Our family live on an old farm, we have three busy children. We are organic. We have a old walled garden and a greenhouse which we have started to rebuild. We have some Cows and calves, Sows and piglets, ducks and drake, Chickens, chicks and Cockerel, Mares and foals, sheep and lambs, cats and kittens and Dogs. We also have fishing, Salmon, trout and Carp. We live between two mountains with some very good walking. We also bake for farmers markets in the local area.
We need some help with all of this, a couple or friends who have some experience with animals and importantly a love and some knowledge of gardening.
