Small farm, with cattle, goats,sheep, alpacas and donkeys.
Alternative energy(wind & solar). We grow and raise much of our own food. We need people to help with gardening, some farmwork and helping with the animals. We are planting out and harvesting from our big vegetable garden and tunnel house, we need someone to help around the farm. Do come and help, you are welcome. Plenty to eat here, and a room of your own.
