Robin moved here over 40 years ago and brought up his family here. Dani lives with her husband Remi in a building near Robin's house. There are 35 acres comprising woodland, fruit trees, pasture and gardens. The main crop is old-variety cider apples, then perry pears, damsons and some plums and dessert apples. The fruit harvest is between September and late November, with pruning mainly in late Winter. There are sheep, chickens, ducks, geese and pigs. There is always gardening work to do either in the kitchen garden or in the flower beds. For those who enjoy heavier work there is plenty of firewood to get in and occasional building work.
