Hi, I always need help around the farm between April and November, there are always jobs where I need an extra hand to get things done, also it always makes things a little easier. I grow hay in our area which is organically grown, it takes time and lots of help to put up the hay we need each year. There's always a job for someone who is willing to learn how to drive a tractor, although it does help if you have some experience driving them, and some other equipment, I do need help around the yard doing odd jobs. The amount of time we need for help varies, working around the yard are usually short days, but when we are driving tractors they tend to become long days, but you are sitting in an air-conditioned cab listening to a stereo all day, many of the helpers enjoy driving because it isn't physically hard, and they enjoy driving. I've had many girls also operate tractors, and which I must say, do very well, I think they surprise themselves how easy it can be. When it rains, we can't do much out in the fields, so we take off for a drive to see the country side or take part in watching sporting activities, and sometimes join in the sports. I can have up to 7 people here at one time, which we all become one big family and are always enjoying each others living environment and time together. I always appreciate if someone can come and help out with the cooking and cleaning in the house.
