Description
We are both over 60 (Jane broke her back last year) and can't keep up with keeping the land in order. We need someone who is strong and fit and is capable of getting on with things without much supervision, and who enjoys working on their own at times.
We live in a hilly wooded area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB), with an orchard, paddock, wood and family vegetable patch. We are situated on top of a hill with fabulous views.
Work here is chiefly maintenance - clearing brambles, trimming and laying hedges, cutting grass, weeding and watering the vegetable patch, pruning fruit trees, bonfires etc.
At certain times of the year we will be harvesting and chopping timber for log burners from our own wood.
We have some raised beds for vegetables and are in the proccess of constructing them whilst also growing vegetables on another patch of our land. However, this year our growing is minimal due to my injury so vegetable growing will not be the bulk of the work.
