If we are shearing all day, then food and drinks are appreciated. Given our preference, we prefer wholesome light foods such as sandwiches and fruit, (but beggars cant be choosers!).
As for accommodation, this is not expected but if yours is the last farm of the day then it would be greatly appreciated. Myself and my assistant are used to some pretty rough conditions and even a spot in the barn or a place to pitch the tent would be happily accepted. This helps to keep my costs reasonable by cutting down on expenses. Again, this is not expected.
