Our little farm has 9 acres, which we are making the most out of. We are developing a small family run business. This is a small project set up by a youngish.. couple :) On the land we have chickens and ducks for eggs, we are raising pigs for meat, a polytunnel for vegetables, a half acre of annual vegetables, a small orchard (just planted) and we are in the process of creating a food forest and pond. We have a number of small projects in the pipeline for the coming year. Developing the food forest further, planting native trees, building a cob oven, building a cob chicken house. For any volunteers coming to stay, you should know we are not experts and are learning as we go. That being said we are excited to share what knowledge we do have.
In addition to the farm work, I am training in natural horsemanship, using the Parelli method, so for anyone interested in horses, there is the opportunity to learn about working with horses naturally. We do not currently use horses for farm work.
For more information on volunteering at our place, and the farm itself, please check out our website.
