Hi my name is Jon , I run a family/owned 90 acre farm on the southwest coast of the UK . We keep pedigree livestock and grow our own fruit and veg , on this none commercial sustainable , traditional off grid farm . We all work together and get involved with the farm.
There are a wide variety of local activities throughout the year for you to experience on your days off , whether coastal walks , horse riding , mountain biking or even climbing or surfing , we enjoy work and love life here on the farm , with friends and visitors alike ! We currently have been having workaways with very little to offer here , even though they say they have experience in certain things .Just because we live near the surf mecca of Newquay do not come here with this as your priority , You will be moved on ! We are a lifestyle not a stopover .
Enter as Strangers , leave as Friends .

Volunteers will benefit from a totally different way of life as they become involved with the work on the farm, which is certainly varied and can be quite demanding at anytime during the year. Volunteers will undoubtedly increase their learning language skills and knowledge of the many hands on methods and traditional ways of working and living on the land and near the sea .
We are always welcoming volunteers here to come and join us and get involved in the running of the farm , weather its a new project or animal husbandry , or building and crafting or just getting stuck in. Being sustainable , we are always needing people who are creative , imaginative and self motivated .and a sense of humour is essential .We need your help for approx 25 hours a week .We do enjoy meal times and love sports and activities .
All potential candidates must have strong fluency in spoken English. Candidates shall have a minimum of Upper Intermediate B2 level English or IELTS certificate score of 7 or above. This paramount for safety in and around the farm.
A very relaxed shared place with other volunteers, with fully equipped facilities.
Very popular with all our friends and guests alike , very community like , secret garden , fire pit ..............
