We are a family farm who make our living from organic farming. So it's serious for us - not a hobby. We welcome volunteers all year round who are interested in country life, farming without chemicals or gmos, and learning about working with nature.
Our main farm product is hens eggs, but and we are building up our horticulture by adding four large polytunnels this year.
We generally need help in the gardens, with our hens, in the house, with fencing and small building projects.
In terms of exchange we offer time spent in a beautiful farm surprisingly remote from the modern world yet still just four kilometres from the nearest town (and atlantic beaches); english-speaking family and volunteer companions; guidance and instruction on the day-to-day practice of organic farming; an understanding of the economics of making a living from farming; we have bicycles for our volunteers to use to explore the area - music, pubs and landscape.
Many of our volunteers have found their experience here an inspiring opportunity to explore a new way of life, a new landscape and to find new friends.

We are looking for help this winter with fence and poultry cabin building; topping out our new polytunnels; day-to-day tasks with our poultry and gardens.
