Hi I am looking for a HelpX to start in February.

I own and run a schools hatching programme using eggs from my champion rare breed hens. The chicks come back to my 6 acre smallholding with fabulous views on the northern edge of Sheffield and the Peak District. I run this with my three children aged 20, 18 and 11. We also have rare breed sheep and goats, three horses, four dogs, two cats and two turkeys - so lots of interesting animals! You will need to love animals here!

VERY IMPORTANT:.....I would like someone who has initiative and can work from a list and be self motivated! I cannot always work with you, due to other work commitments, on the smaller jobs once you have been shown them. Also someone who is used to animals and wishes to learn more about their husbandry would be ideal.

I would like someone to do help out with daily jobs looking after the livestock. Also building fences and sheds, gardening, and on rainy day some decorating and restoration in our period ... more inside

Set in the beautiful countryside just on the Welsh border. Close to areas of special scientific interest, meres, mosses and canals. Also commutable to the Welsh coast for days off if required.
We farm in a mostly organic way, sheep, poultry, rescued horses.also rescued dogs. We would like help from people with abilities in construction, fencing or logging or those who wish to care for the animals.Please note that we do expect a fair exchange of hours for board. we are not able to run a hotel service for unwilling helpers as this is a charitable organisation and food and facilities are not free. Please note this is a non-smoking site due to insurance and safety.
Our gardens and hedgerows are left for the benefit of the many rare birds and insects. We have a large sett of badgers who can be seen by camping nearby.
Due to failing health we need help to continue our work. This is rural but not remote.There is limited bus service within one mile and trains three miles away.( The neare... more inside

We have a large house and garden which we require some help looking after. We always have lots of projects on the go, we mainly work outside unless the weather drives us inside.

This year we hope to establish a bigger vegetable garden and put up a polytunnel so we can extend our growing season. We are also in the middle of renovating an old farm cottage on our land, we have builders doing some of the work but need help with some of the decorating, kitchen and bathroom fitting, woodwork and tidying up the area around the cottage which includes some land clearance.

We are looking for people from the end of March. Minimum stay 3 weeks.

We are close to town and sea with Dartmoor nearby.

Whilst we do prefer longer stays we will take people for as little as 3 weeks. But not less than 3 weeks, we find that the early days can be difficult for everyone and it takes a while to get to know each other. It also takes time for helpers to learn the routines.

Philosophy:
We have a small holding in Devon where we aim to grow as much of our own food as we can in an organic and sustainable way. So we have a small orchard a Kitchen Garden for vegetable growing, a fruit garden for soft fruit plus half an acre of flower gardens. We also have poultry (Chickens, various ducks, and geese) and there are bees which belong to a friend. The poultry are not for eating, but do provide us with a plentiful supply of eggs for most of the year.
Although not self sufficient in fruit and vegetables we do try to grow what we can, so there is usually fresh veg in seaso... more inside

Our quiet, secluded, 12 acre smallholding is home to our herd of 18 Alpaca, 8 Sheep, 7 Geese, 10 Ducks, ~40 Chickens and a couple of pigs (in the summer). Located alongside the river Chew it also has a small orchard and walled vegetable garden.

The 14th Century Farmhouse is a delightful home to Sarah, Chris and our young daughter Penny, and of course our Black Labrador and kitten - but also an ongoing renovation project. The accommodation for Helpers is a twin-bedded bedroom; so will accommodate up to two who are happy to share. The bathroom and all other amenities are shared with the family. Laundry and WiFi are free for Helpers' use. It is our preference for Helpers to eat with the family. Should you want a little more privacy, we do have a caravan available (for the summer months).

As hosts, we would welcome volunteers with any of the following interests: conservation; gardening; animal husbandry; hedge maintenance; land management; DIY (to name but a few...)
