Joe Aching is the tenant of Home Farm, like generations of his ancestors. He is now likely in his forties, with his older children grown and gone, leaving just young Wentworth and, part-time, his youngest daughter, Tiffany. Joe is a little confused by his daughter: your little girl isn't supposed to turn into a Witch and take over your mother's duties to the sheep and the land. How do you address the child you used to spank for being beastly to Wentworth now that she's been to the Desert? It's not easy being the father (or husband, or son, or daughter-in-law) of a witch.
A big fair-haired man, who works very hard yet has very soft hands (from the oils in the sheep's wool).
