    ... the food into a trough where mayhem soon ensued. This was our wild introduction to life on Overthere Farm in the Byrne Valley, KZN. Our day began with the horrors mentioned above followed by various activities depending on the needs of the day. These included cutting grass along the fence-line, digging trenches, burning tree stumps, herding cattle and weeding the veggie patch. At 10:30 we would break for tea and eat homemade bread with milk and butter fresh from Sudoku’s ...
