Hi Jo, thank you for your reply, either a Sunday or a Wednesday are best for me, Sunday I might have kids, but Wed is my glorious child free day! Don't know if you are horsey or not but i better warn you that there are three horses and two ponies on the field at the moment, they will hopefully be electrically fenced safely out of the way by the end of the week though. Let me know which suits best, Karen
Hi Jo, i'm not far from you, around Henley/High Ham, six acres of land and looking to start growing initially for own use but would like to sell some produce locally. Very interested in Care Farming, reading quite a lot about it on the net and might like to get involved, not sure if this would appeal to you? If you are still looking for somewhere to grow just send me a message,
