What Hanzon Workers have enjoyed about their experience:

“Don’t bring a whole load of clothes. All you need are the essentials and buy the rest as it is cheaper. Don’t bring work jeans, waste of space, you will never use them... . The open spaces, the quiet roads, big wide roads, friendly people… . Bigger area farms ... . Big dairy herds, average over 600 and up to 1200 in the area where I worked. Adam Pike, Devon England
