We are a family run dairy farm on the Isle of Mull, milking our own herd of 130 dairy cows and turning all of our milk into cheese. We are a busy place with lots going on, including a small pig enterprise where we produce pork for local outlets, we also have 4 self-catering holiday lets which are very busy through the summer months and an onsite farm shop and cafe which is open seasonally when the island is busier with tourists. Our cheese is produced to a high standard and we take pride in that the whole process, from start to finish, breeding our own animals, milking our own cows, making, maturing and processing of our cheese all happens on our farm here on Mull. Our cheese is sold mainly wholesale throughout the UK and ends up in many speciality cheese shops, delis and farm shops and on the menus of some top class restaurants. We have won many awards throughout the 40 years we have been making cheese and aim to continue producing to a high standard, maintaining our quality milk and happy animals.

Other than getting to come and spend some time living on our beautiful island we hope workaways will learn about cheese production and life on a working farm. You will get the opportunity to see how we have diversified, with our island location makes us different from many other dairy farms. The café is a beautiful relaxing space and a really wonderful environment to spend your summer!

We currently need a bit of help over the summer months working in our café /shop and cleaning holiday cottages, and then some one to work in the shop when the cafe closes and do a bit of help in the cheese processing, mainly cutting and packaging cheese for orders.
Ideally we need someone with a little bit of hospitality experience, serving customers, taking orders, preparing orders and would love it if someone had a little bit of barista training or knowledge in how to make coffee! Also cleaning to a high standard and able to leave a nice finish! The holiday cottages are Saturday changeovers, Saturday morning would be cleaning and then probably 5 days a week in the café. So 5.5 days a week work.
It is a small café, usually 4/5 people on a day, so working in a small team and able to chip in wherever needed, and to work well with others, and also be enthusiastic about our farm produce when selling to tourists. It is also a pretty stunning café, pic on our profile, so working hard allows you some more time to chill out and relax in the space!
Accomodation would either be a compact flat/tiny house, or a mobile home/caravan, just depending on what is available at the time. The flat is small but relatively modern with a small food prep area, bathroom and bed. The caravan is a 5/10 minute walk to the farm and is also relatively modern. Workaways would be expected to provide their own food. You will be paid minimum wage, minus £50 / week rent.
We are about a mile outside Tobermory (the main town on Mull), a15 minute walk (down hill) to town and a 20 minute walk (up hill) back from town. There are local taxis available which cost about £3.50 from our farm to town. There are some bus routes on the island which you can catch to visit places such as Calgary beach. There are plenty of beautiful walks on Mull and lots of wildlife to see. The nearest town is Tobermory which has a couple of food/convenience shops, some cafes and restaurants and a couple of pubs.
