  • Description

    Description

    Family run farm mainly growing strawberries, which we are very passionate about. We also have raspberries, cherries and blueberries. We are looking for two gap year students to work July and August. The work would start early with strawberry picking, taking down polytunnels and then helping in the Pick Your Own kiosk which is also a café. Its a fun place to work although hard at times, yet it is very rewarding.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have a very friendly atmosphere on the farm. In the fields you will work as a team and in the café/pyo kiosk you will be with one other sometimes more at busy times. We are a very happy bunch and our staff have been coming back for many years to pick strawberries. We are 15 minutes from the town where you can join the local activity groups. We have bicycles you can borrow.
