    We are a family of four, me, my wife Alice and two daughters Bea and Mary who are 6 and 7. We live in a beautiful part of England, not far from the sea. Our little farm is a 5 acre smallholding near the village of Marshwood on the Devon Dorset border, 5 miles from the coast at Lyme Regis. We are a ten minute walk from the village where there is a pub and a small shop.

    We keep chickens, sheep and rare breed pigs. We also have an orchard and vegetable garden. We have an event catering business and cater for parties all over the country, often using ingredients we have produced ourselves. We are beginning to produce our own charcuterie and we make cider in the autumn from apple trees we planted.

    This summer we are going to start having guests staying in our holiday accommodation - converted barns, a bell tent and a cabin.

    We need help with general maintenance and tidying jobs on the farm and in the garden, as well as the occasional building project.

    We offer a taste of a very traditional way of life in that we value old fashioned techniques like hedge laying, organic gardening and building with traditional materials. I am a chef so good food and producing the most delicious ingredients possible is at the heart of what we do here. We are also lucky to live in an outstandingly beautiful place and would like to share it with others.

    Help around the farm could include things like helping with repairing cobb walls, laying hedges, working in the vegetable garden, weeding, repairing fencing, painting, and maintaining buildings and equipment.

    Please note that you will be required to do dirty, physical tasks so you will need to be prepared for some hard work! It will be good fun though and we will feed you well!

    Between April and October, accommodation is in a large tent. Outside these months we will put you up inside
    We will provide all your meals, some of which might be self-catered (e.g. some of our meat to put on the barbeque and some ingredients for a salad).

    This is best suited to a pair of friends or a couple.
    There is lots to do in Lyme Regis and Bridport but public transport is limited. We can supply bicycles and the walking is great. There is one pub within walking distance and two more an easy cycle away.
