    Beschreibung

    This is an organic farm run by around 30 of us (plus children). We live in different households that have been adapted from a Georgian manor house, stable block and other outbuildings. We garden and farm a large area of land and our charity, The Frome Society, runs occasional events such as singing workshops, yoga etc.

    We are not a commercial enterprise. We work together to produce a significant amount of our own food including meat, milk, eggs, fruit and vegetables.

    Land includes pasture (for dairy cows, sheep, goats, chickens and sometimes pigs and geese), arable fields (producing feed for our animals as well as ourselves), a walled vegetable garden, greenhouse and polytunnels, orchard, a small area of woodland and a lake and garden. We welcome help with all jobs around the place - with the animals, gardening or on the grounds and buildings.

    We generally host up to 3 volunteers for roughly two weeks at a time. We do this about once a month from late spring through to the autumn.

    We usually ask for 5 hours help per day with 2 full days off each week.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We have been hosting volunteers for almost 40 years now. People seem to like it here... learning a little about community living and helping out with tasks about the farm.

    We prefer that our volunteers are reasonably proficient in speaking English.

    We are in a rural area, seven miles from the nearest town. If you don't have your own transport we can usually sort out lifts into town on days off. Local attractions include the nearby small city of Hereford famous its cathedral housing the Mappa Mundi, the book town of Hay on Wye and walking on the Malvern Hills. The closest town is Ledbury which has some interesting shops and decent coffee shops.
    There is a nice circular walk out the back of our place over the fields via a small hamlet and church (no shops or pub there though) through woodlands and parkland. The walk takes about an hour and the best bit is you can do it without having to get in a car or walk along a road.
