ABOUT THE FARM HOLDING
Bernie’s farm is a real family affair! The farm is now run by Bernie’s son who looks after the tillage and lives beside Bernie with his wife and three children; Bernie’s daughter also works on the farm looking after the dairy and rearing of calves.
Bernie is now retired herself but has some hens and is hoping to get a pig soon. She helps on the farm as much as she can and loves looking after her grandchildren. Her favourite thing is cooking for the family and others who visit the farm. She has a lovely garden where she grows vegetables and herbs to cook with.
