We have arrived and settled into life working on a farm. For the next three weeks we will be living here as WWOOFers [Willing Workers on Organic Farms]. We work here on the farm and in exchange we get housed and fed.
Well, after 3 days of hard work we are loving this experience. We have done a variety of different things already, weeding, reaping, sorting produce. It was lots of fun weeding yesterday with a little 2 month old kitten trying to play with us while we tried to work. He would climb our legs and sit on our backs.
They also have 2 donkeys here which they use to work the land. I love donkeys and best part of my day is when we take the donkeys to their new feeding spot each day, then returning them to their stable in the afternoon. We have already learnt so much and are growing in our appreciation of "field to fork" culture.
