Hi, we are a family of 4, myself Alex, my husband Tom and our 2 daughters Florence 6 and emily 3. Our 14.5 year old spaniel and just under 6000 hens!!! We live in 8 acres in a house we finished building last year.
Our lives are pretty busy!! School runs, hens, farm jobs, and my husband also runs his own chartered surveying practice. So occasionally we like to escape, we have family and friends scattered across the country who we don't visit enough due to the ties at home. These visits are normally over a weekend Friday to Sunday or just a Saturday night.
Our Home & Location
Our farm house is a warm and cosy 4 house which after two years building we moved into last year.
We are on site with the hens, surrounded by fields there is a fishing lake and plenty of country walks....
The nearest village (about a half an hour walk away) or a 5 min drive, has a very friendly pub with delicious food . + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
We have just under 6000 laying hens on site, these girls are looked after by a farm hand on a daily basis and our eggs are collected daily by a great team of egg collectors.
We do have a 14.5 year old springer spaniel, he acts like a puppy but is stone deaf! He spends most of the day pottering around the farm and can be left for periods of time....
There is a retired farm cat who likes to spend his days soaking up the sun preferably on a bed somewhere! and a little guinea pig, toffee.
Duties in the farm would be minimal, checking a few things in the evening and first thing in the morning. + More info
