Joe Aching is the tenant of Home Farm, like generations of his ancestors and is the son of Sarah Aching, shepherdess and witch for the Chalk. He is the father of daughter Tiffany and son Wentworth but has at least two other older daughters who by the end of the series have grown up and left home, leaving just young Wentworth and, part-time, his youngest daughter, Tiffany. Joe is a a big fair-haired man, who works very hard yet has very soft hands from the lanolin in the sheep's wool. He is a little confused by Tiffany, not expecting his little girl to become a Witch and take over his own mother's duties to the sheep and the land. It's not easy being the father (or husband, or son, or daughter-in-law) of a witch.
