  • Description

    Description

    We are an 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.

    It is a vibrant place, with lots of people to talk to. Learning English, formal training if needed. Spending time on a farm that is organic, managed for conservation. Charitable objectives and spending time with different groups of people. Beautiful area, close to sea and moors. Totnes is an alternative town with lots going on.

    We have a rare opportunity to come and stay at the farm in our accommodation barn. We are not hosting a traineeship this winter so we can offer an experience of the farm for a couple of months. Whether you need work experience, to build your cv or just somewhere to volunteer we can take up to 6. Types of activities are varied from gardening, wildlife surveying, working with the adults with learning disabilities, woodland work and farm work.
