Abundance Farm's

Omar

 

I'd like to introduce Omar. Too bad he is shy around cameras. Watch him take off.

AHA, got him.

Here's my daughter. She sometimes helps out at the farm.

Omar is an illiterate local guy who has been living at the farm on and off for practially his whole life. So we had to figure out what to do when we bought the farm and he sort of came with it. The former owner suggested to get a new caretaker as soon as possible and get rid of drunken and mischievous Omar. But since we will be living at the farm, we don't need a caretaker. Much less do we need a caretaker who has watched over the gradual deterioration of the property through neglect of himself and others for fifteen years. For a while, we changed his arrangement from the local labor arrangement to being on the same basis as the rest of us who live at the farm.  But since then we realized it was not working for anyone and in a somewhat amiable parting, he moved back to town.  We may still offer him unemployment in the future as a laborer or guide.
