  • Description

    Description

    We're a small family-run farm and campsite, located in a quiet rural spot but close to the town of Frome. We grow vegetables and keep some livestock using organic methods, selling our produce locally.

    Lots of trees, beautiful views and usually a good group of farmers and volunteers enjoying working together. We live on the site off-grid: PV panels for electricity, solar/woodburner for hot water, composting toilets etc. Interests in sustainability and local food.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Shared work and shared meals with a farm family and other volunteers near a lively small town provide lots of opportunities to engage with others. Events, cultural activities and nightlife just on the doorstep in town. Also opportunities to learn about small-scale farming and alternative local food production.

  • Help

    Help

    Help falls into 3 categories: (1) farming - mostly working in the gardens helping to grow vegetables, but also work with livestock, fruit and woodland; (2) small-scale building projects, carpentry and general site maintenance; (3) household help, cooking, cleaning etc. Volunteers with an interest in any or all of these areas very welcome.
