A few words about our property:

Life style farm.

Here is why I think we can provide a good home:

My dad is an avid animal lover and I think he’s always been a great farmer and has a great relationship with all animals. He has been a farmer all his working life, and has always had farm dogs. He has been talking about this, but has no access to internet, so I said I would organise this for him. I am his daughter, and would love to organise this as a birthday gift for him. My dad is 78 years old.
