Small friendly organic market garden in west of Scotland with herd of milking goats, about ten miles from Glasgow city centre. We set up the farm 25 years ago to provide young people with training in natural goat-keeping and all aspects of organic growing, such as permaculture. biodynamic methods and other innovative and time-saving methods.

We are looking for volunteers to join us for long or short stays (minimum three weeks) who want to know more about goats, growing food and survival methods such as saving seed. In return for about six hours work a day you will enjoy healthy organic food and stay in a heated caravan.

The work can sometimes be hard but we have a lot of fun!

Sadly these days, since we had some crazy folk here in the past, we have found that we have to ask people wanting to come and live with us for a reference, and to let us have the name,occupation,(farmer, other host, previous boss, lecturer or teacher) and telephone number of the referee. We have had really good times since we have done this and hope that this does not put you off and that you will still contact us.

Building work is beginning here and we are also starting to build new goat houses ourselves, so any helpers with joinery and/or building skills will be joyfully welcomed!
