About the workproject

We need 2 volunteers

I am a recently widowed small-scale farmer, with a very labour intensive way of growing and selling crops (all by hand). It used to take two of us to run the place, now there is only me and it is very hard to keep up.
My small farm (33 acres) is about 15 km south of Seddon, in Marlborough. It is peaceful and a lovely place to live or visit.

I was married for nearly 40 years to my best friend. She sadly died recently, so I am alone trying to run the place by myself, which is hard. I am 66 but young at heart, my hobbies are mainly the farm, and reading. I also have SKY and enjoy movies.
