Help wanted! Summer and beyond!

We have meadows, pasture, woodland, lakes and stunning views of both sea and mountain. We are starting to grow veg, meat and eggs and soon milk. But we are just starting out and this is on a small and sustainable human scale that we hope will provide food and fuel for visitors to the farm and the local community. We are using holistic management, permaculture and traditional methods.

As well as being productive, we want this to be a place where people can come and slow down for a while, to think about what matters in the world and what the world needs us to give back.

We have only been here for a few years and have had two babies and put a roof on the house, so much of this is aspirational, but we will get there (especially with your help)

We have a young family and so some of the time you would be left to your own devices for cooking and eating dinner etc so you would have to be happy to spend some time by yourself. Our place would suit a couple best. That said we are social and friendly people so you wouldn’t be left all alone!

Accommodation is in a static caravan, or small stone 'bothy' with a compost toilet and use of our campsite showers etc.

We ask you to work 9am till lunch and your welcome to jump things around a bit to fit what else you fancy doing whilst your here. As normal we will provide food etc, though sometimes you may have to cook this yourself.

We need help for all sorts of jobs, but the upcoming main jobs are:

Improving our fences to keep our cows and sheep out of our wildflower meadow, veg garden and camping areas

changing the farm over to work with our spring instead of mains water

Sustainable, low impact but quite traditional building renovation

Planting a new orchard and forest garden.

Daily care of pigs, sheep, chickens and cows.

Please take a look at our website to learn more...
