About the Farmers
Grew up on a dairy farm in England. He qualified as an Agricultural Engineer from Oxford. Jim worked in partnership with his brother for 20 years doing custom farm work of silaging, baling, ploughing and seeding operations. They raised beef cattle for 10 years.
Jim met Jo and her three children in 2002, they married in ’03 and had four more children together. They fostered nine other children over a two-and-a-half-year period as a Saskatchewan Foster Family.
Grew up as a city girl. She originally qualified in science, and worked as a lab technician, in medical communications and as a college lecturer in England, in between babies. In Canada she taught grade school, in between babies, and enjoyed a short stint in Waldorf Steiner teaching.
She met Jim, who took the girl out of the city, and the city out of the girl!
