  • Description

    Description

    We are a family run organic care farm on the beautiful Sharpham estate in South devon.
    We manage the land for conservation and wildlife, and during the week adults with learning disabilities come to the farm for training and day care. We also host international trainees learning about conservation who stay in our accommodation barn.
    We are very close to the diverse and lovely town of Totnes and are close to the moors and Coast.

    During the summer we are looking for some home help. Enjoying the summer and life on the farm with our two boys. 4 & 2. They are outdoorsy boys and love to learn.
    We also need help sorting out the site infrastructure such as stone laying, fencing, planting.
    Depending on length of stay work might also need doing on the garden, practical farm activities or helping alongside our trainees and their programme.
