I live on a six acre smallholding with my 17 year old son. We have a small flock of rare breed Balwen sheep, two Sebastopol geese, five cats and a Jack Russell terrier.We are situated three miles from the nearest village shop, and eight miles from the nearest town. We are looking for helpers to get a kitchen garden up and running, including a polytunnel, greenhouses, fruit cages, raised beds,orchard, compost bins,rainwater collection, etc. We also need help with putting up a shed/barn for livestock, we have no experience of this so will be learning as we go! Our plans include a forest garden, grey water system, tree bog, coppiced willows, bee keeping, putting in a large pond, and various other permaculture type projects. I enjoy making chutneys, wine, jam, sloe gin, etc. I also do a bit of craft, mainly sewing, but my main passion is for plants. In the future I would love to set up a small business selling rare and unusual plants. My son is a musician, we both love listening to a wide range of music. There are many places of interest close to us - Fyvie Castle, Pennan, Delgaty Castle, some whisky distilleries. We are looking for helpers who are enthusiastic, easy going, spontaneous, and willing to learn new skills alongside us.
