    Hello my wife and I have pet alpacas and we are living off grid. We create energy ( well, the Sun does it for us ) into electricity and also grow our own food. ( as much as we can ) I am not keen on genetically modified food and pesticides .
    We can offer you a cultural exchange i.e. help you to learn English ( and you can help me learn your language )as well as teaching you skills on the farm such as vegetable growing and farm maintenance. Often we open the farm up to the community ( no money exchange only kindness )
    . There is also work to do on the vegetable areas to provide our food and also your food. In the summer there is always freshly grown salad in the poly tunnel and usually vegetables in the growing area.
    The volunteer will not be in involved in business activities but will need to contribute to the farm in ways previously described. We have internet but sometimes it is not perfect.
    I am interested in Asian culture and can speak some French. We lived in France for three years .On that note please be aware of the new freedom of movement regulations that come with Brexit. I look forward to learning about you and your life and you will get a good view into ours.
    Please check out my 5* reviews
    See you soon.

    You will learn about farming and self reliance.... and about the culture.
    We can help with the language and are both patient listeners.
    We always have interesting conversations and we can learn as much from you as you will from us.

    We are accepting volunteers during the COVID 19 period and are conforming to government guidelines. The volunteers help would be centred on the non-profit making side of the farm and not the business side. The help would Include assisting in the poly tunnel which provides food for the household . Also help on the vegetable growing area which also provides food. General maintenance around the off grid system. Also some help with the alpacas centered around those that have retired and are really pets.

  • Alojamiento

    Alojamiento

    The accommodation is self catering and is a lovely studio in the side of the barn ( Sometimes it is a self catering caravan,with use of shower an toilet etcetera ) The room is lockable and just for one volunteer. It has a sink and gas hob and grill. It has a lovely view out to the farm. There is a hot shower and toilet and fridge very near. I would prefer non-smokers as the barn and it's contents are highly flammable. (we provide all the food,bedding and towels ) There is a sitting area outside. There is a calm beautiful atmosphere here. Sometimes we could eat together but mostly you will be cooking for yourself. You will have plenty of breaks and spare time to enjoy the view.

    We can pick up the volunteer from Winkleigh bus stop. You can get a bus to Winkleigh from Exeter. There is a carp fishing lake half a mile away. The villages of Dolton and Winkleigh three miles away have good pubs and small shops. Dartmoor is 10 miles away which is good for hiking. The North Devon coast is 35 minutes drive.

    The studio provided is self catering with a gas hob and grill . There is a nice sitting area outside with table and chairs. We are happy to socialise and of course be involved in cultural exchange ) but you will have your own space.

    We would hope the volunteer would leave here having gained some experience and also thought the experience was worthwhile
