So, did you accept the proposition? And is the farm any good for orienteering?
That might be over and above the line of duty.
I would think it all depends on the qualities the bloke can offer. For example, is it loam or clay soil?
I thought what mattered was how old and how healthy he was. The older and the more unhealthy, the better.
Soils? I couldn't say. Orienteering? Maybe.
Be warned: my grandfather (the dairy farmer) outlived 3 wives!
