This is an intentional community of about 40 people (adults and children) living in separate self-contained units within a Georgian manor house, stable block and cottages on 40 acres of land. We work the farm co-operatively with the aim of producing a substantial part of our food including meat, milk, eggs, fruit and vegetables.

Land includes 20 acres of pasture, 8 acres arable, 2 acre walled vegetable garden, a large Victorian greenhouse and polytunnels, an orchard, a small area of woodland and a lake and garden. We have dairy cows, goats and sheep as well as hens, bees and, sometimes, pigs. You may be working on just about any job on the farm: with the animals, gardening or on the grounds and buildings.

We generally host up to 3 volunteers for a fortnight at a time for general helping out about the farm and estate.

Accommodation is in shared rooms (sometimes private) with adjacent toilet and shower room. There is a large communal kitchen nearby for preparing meals and spending time off.

We provide food for you to self-cater most meals. We have a communal meal every Saturday evening.

We accept volunteers from the end of March through to November for a full two weeks. We ask for up to 5 hours work per day with 2 days off each week.

We are in a rural area, seven miles from the nearest town...if you don't have your own transport we can usually sort out lifts into town on days off.
