We are available to help you after welcoming you to the property, although we generally disappear! One of your peacocks does not, he enjoys over-seeing the property! The sheep also enjoy grazing in the lush pastures by the pond. Twice a day, the irrigation on the property must be changed to support the vineyard and green pastures. This takes place early morning and at sunset.
