We are looking for help in our new eco cafe this winter/spring It is becoming more popular by the day. This is our main focus this year, but there is also a lot to do on the farm as well. Hopefully this provides a good balance for helpers.
It is especially good for people wishing to improve their English.
Couples with their own accomodation especially suited to here.


Our farm is a base for conservation grazing across the Chilterns. Apart from grazing we also carry out contract work for conservation bodies and individuals. This consists of the whole range of rural activities you would associate with conservation.
There are two polytunnels and raised beds, but these have been underutilised through lack of time this year.
There is always something to do for any level of skill.
The accomodation is self contained in touring caravans. There is a proper loo and shower in an adjacent building.
Food is provided, but it would consumed indecently. Its a meat producing farm and we eat our own meat a lot, so its definitely not for the vegans and veggies out there.
We try to live as low impact as we can, but there is wifi, tv and all that stuff.
It is very remote despite being so close to London(35 miles). It is very easy to visit Oxford and London via the local bus and train.
