  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of 4 (Ian, Sarah and 2 boys Ali and Edward), living and working on our dairy goat farm near Wells, in beautiful Somerset. We have about 100 goats as well as a small number of pigs, sheep and donkeys.

    We make a range of cheeses, yoghurt and cream and sell our produce across the South West. We also have an eco-friendly campsite.

    We're surrounded by great places to explore, either walking or cycling around the Mendip Hills or visiting place like Wells, Glastonbury, Bath and Bristol.

    Help

    The work is quite varied with the campsite, farm and cheese making. We particularly need help on the campsite during the summer season. This would involve some cleaning, recycling, chatting to campers.
    The farm work is taking care of our animals, learning the milking and feeding routine.
    Cheese making - we can show you some basic cheese making and we need help with packaging.
    We offer paid work at the minimum wage for hours worked.
