I have recently returned home to the family farm and need your help:) Come and have a wonderful summer on our farm.
We have 50 acres of grassland with 2 jersey house cows. A small herd of shorthorn beef cows and wiltshire horn sheep. We have a couple of glouceser old spot pigs, some chickens and a veg patch. The farm is highly diversified with craft/artists workshops, a campsite, a cafe, and a river swimming club. We have a small school on site and we do lots of farm education with school trips and also a regular farm school.
There is also 150 acres of conventional arable land that I am managing under countryside stewardship with an aim to encourage wild pollinators, bats and birds.
Volunteers would be expected to work 25 hours a week and can stay for 3 weeks or longer. Jobs can vary and can include gardening, working in the tearoom and on the coffee van, collecting subs at the river swimming club, looking after the campsite, and working with school groups. Depending on your experience you could also take on a project of your own. You would stay in either our caravan or your own van or tent if you want. The cafe kitchen will be available to use, food will be provided or taken from the garden. A recreation room with table football and snooker is also available. If you are interested please send me an email explaining why you want the placement and what relevant experience you may have. I am now looking for someone to work in September, 2 days of farm school, 2 days of coffee van and 1 day of odd jobs.
Thanks :)
