Reference, 12th November 2018

Julia and Martin have looked after our smallholding several times over the last few years, and we were always very happy with their services. They have milked our goats, shut them in and let them out, fed them. They have also fed and watered our chickens, and fed our cats. They have always been reliable and have communicated with us to let us know everything is fine. We can only recommend their services, they have made it possible for us to go away together and enjoy our breaks.

Just wanted to say thank you again for taking such good care of the house and menagerie whilst we were away. The cats didn’t even give us the cold shoulder after we got home, so they must have been happy! – Tina
