*** Looking for enthusiastic people to join our team! ***

Fancy a little escape to the British countryside? The busy summer season is fast approaching and we are now preparing for this year's festivals and brewing - work will involve building structures for the venue, some sheep work - Gardening, brewing beer and general help around the house. We are looking for people for short term stays to start immediately, so please get in touch if you'd like to come and get involved!

If you're hard-working when needed, but enjoy a laid back lifestyle and up for a laugh please get in touch.***

Nestled right on the beautiful Jurassic Coast, smack-bang in the center southern Dorset, this farm is a 300 acre family farm that wears many hats! We raise a large flock of sheep, raise pigs, turkey and geese, we run a campsite, maintain our vineyards and produce thousands of liters of traditional cider every year that we sell at the farm cider shed. We have polytunnels and gardens and do our best to live as sustainability as possible. Our most recent and glamorous endeavors are the micro brewery for beer which is up and running and hosting of many multi-day festivals on the farm with outstanding live bands, great food, tons of quality drinks and memories that you’ll hold dear to your heart for years to come. The farm is looking for young, active people who want to live life and get outdoors. We have plans to provide "Glamping" and woodland skills holidays in the summer of 2017 on our river bank, hill tops and in our ancient woodlands. We are active all year round with hundreds of different tasks so no two days are the same. The house is heated by wood burners so there is always woodland work. We want to provide a great experience in exchange for a respectful amount of work on the farm. If you come in the summer months we also have a large out door swimming pool. We all sleep under the same roof so we must work as a team. This being said, volunteers will be expected to respect our home. Please come with a general understanding of living with others. Keeping common areas clean, doing your part during every meal and always helping to clean up. We are operating in a fun, creative and beautiful environment and expect those who join us to understand how to operate in polite society. We look forward to hearing from you!

Volunteers have rooms in there own wing of the Dairy House. We usually look after between 3 or 4 helpers all year round.
