    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in a beautiful part of the UK. Lots of rolling countryside to explore right on our doorstep and surrounded by beautiful beaches and coastline. If you are a keen hiker there is lots of Moorland to be explored and if you prefer to spend your time off relaxing at the beach then it is just a short drive. Bikes are available to use on days off and they are especially good to take along the Camel Trail, an 18 mile cycle path meandering along the river camel, starting just a mile from our farm and ending 18 miles later on the coast in Padstow.

    We also have a lot of experience hosting volunteers and are quite set up to ensure they have a lovely stay with us. This position will especially benefit somebody that is interested in learning about all the different aspects of running a farm and all the different types of jobs involved with a particular emphasis on sustainable farming and working with the environment and not against it.
