We are an older couple -65 and 72 years old who are very very experienced hosts. We have had all sorts of helpers on the farm over the years and generally have had wonderful experiences.
Alex has cancer in Stage 4- which is currently managed. Kate is not a s fit and has had multiple surgeries on her legs and arms. We both still work extremely hard and love life . We see our children and grandchildren regularly because some of them live nearby . We do not leave the farm much, but have a large number of visitors and friends who just drop in. We are also invloved with the local community in a number of ways.
