Description
We have lived here for thirty years but the property has been owned by my husband's family for 160 years. It is a large Victorian house with garden and 2000 acres of farmland and woods. We have sheep on the farm though rarely need help with them. I would like WWOOFers to cut hedges and grass and bring in logs for Winter. In summer we need help weeding and planting vegetables too. I have done most jobs in this garden myself and can show people what to do. It is a help to have Wwoofers who have used small machinery (quad bike, chainsaw, hedgetrimmer, strimmer) but not essential. Sometimes we need help planting trees in the woods or putting in tree stakes and tree guards. There may be some DIY jobs too - like painting sheds or glazing. We try to give Wwoofers a variety of work.
