Our farm is a 185 acres of organic pastures. Barbara runs the farm with her daughters Casha and Ally, as well her holistic veterinary practice (see our website link above). Casha's husband Adam also does a lot of work on the farm when he is not working in his outdoor activity business. The farm aims to bring great awareness of organic food production and living a more sustainable existence.

Current projects we are working on:

- Sustainable development of the farmhouse & farm buildings
- Vegetable Garden (1 acre inc 18' x 42' polytunnel and a smaller one)
- Preparation of pop-up farm shop

- Tree Planting Program (6 Hectares this year). This will be done in the autumn but there is a lot of preparation and fencing to do before then
- Care of 3 year old tree plantations (2.8 hectares)
- Setting up an outdoor activity and bushcraft programme (run by Adam)
- Coppicing existing woodland to fuel the farmhouse
- Tending to our small flock of chickens
- Small orchard of apples, pears & plums (harvested in late summer)
We like to invite people to join us from all walks of life, but if there are people out there with the following skills we would love to get your help:

- Gardening
- Housekeeping
- Sustainable building (Insulating the farm house, plastering etc)
- Carpentry (fixing farm yard doors, windows & flooring)
- General DIY (putting up shelves, fixing doors etc)
- Cooking (we always have a lot of hungry mouths to feed)
- Brewing (Cropping apples, pears & elderflowers for year round tipple for our wonderful volunteers)

Wishing you all the best with your HelpX search.
