You can learn English, learn about farming and also about Christianity if that interests you as we are a Christian farm and there are some musicians living here who like to sing and play around a campfire. Others like to pray as we plan to set up a retreat centre.
There are a variety of things you can do which could be farming with sheep, goats, cattle, cats, dogs, horses and chickens ...... or you can do building work ie. we are renovating a barn - insulating it to build a recording studio; there are also various DIY repair jobs which doing around the farm - could be helping to put up a fence ...; you can also do some property maintenance in Bristol; There is also some computer and office help for someone who likes this type of task together with house work, cleaning and cooking; there is also a vegetable garden which needs to replanted and maintained as well as an orchard with apples, pears and plums. Another option for those with cooking skills could be to volunteer in a Charity cafe in Bristol for the odd day of the week. So theres a lot of variety and options. We have only had this farm for for a short period.
