    ***COVID UPDATE*** We cannot currently host guests in our house due to COVID restrictions and due to my grandma staying in the workawayers' usual room!
    We can welcome anyone who has separate accomodation i.e. a motorhome which we could accommodate on our car park or someone staying/living locally.

    We are a family farm set in 50+ acres on the edge of the Peak District, just 25 mins on the train from Manchester City Centre.
    We have 6 horses of our own in a herd of around 17. Our farm is an ethical, holistic horse farm where horses live together as a herd all year round, never in stables.

    Myself and my boyfriend are converting a van to live in and have just acquired 2.5 acres adjoining the farm where we plan to grow all our own food (eventually) following organic, permaculture principles, as well as creating a forest garden.

    I currently work away anywhere from 1 to 3 days a week and my mum is shielding so is not able to have much interaction with volunteers. As there may be a few days a week of alone time, the farm might better suit couples/ friends travelling together. However, when we are around me and my boyfriend are very sociable and will take any willing volunteers around all the local pubs!

    We need extra help with the more physical jobs and/or building things (from composting bays to horse shelters).

    We are very interested, and have some knowledge, in:
    Eco-building, sustainability, permaculture, companion planting, food forests, foraging, plant identification, food preservation techniques, zoopharmaconosy, medicinal plants and natural remedies, pilates, the horse-human relationship, mindfulness with animals and classical dressage.

    My mum speaks French and German and I speak Spanish and some French. We like learning new languages or helping with English language so language learners are very welcome.

  • Ayuda


    Currently work can include any of the following:
    -Caring for horses
    -Lots of fencing!
    -Building and repairing shelters and facilities/ general maintenance
    -Pasture /hedgerow management and maintenance
    -DIY garden projects i.e. building raised beds.

    I can give guidance with most of the above minus DIY skills, so anyone with building skills would be invaluable!
    Practical and hands-on people are very welcome.

  • Algo más...

    Algo más...

    We have a fairly relaxed attitude to work and like to give volunteers plenty of time to themselves to go exploring.
    Any volunteers must be friendly and good with animals and people.
    We can provide food including vegan options if you let us know.
    We expect volunteers to be fairly self sufficient (do most of your own washing, cooking and cleaning).
