We are a family of 4 (Ian, Sarah and 2 boys Ali and Edward), living and working on our dairy goat farm near Wells, in beautiful Somerset. We have about 150 goats, 2 sheep, 2 pigs, hens and 1 donkey.
We make a range of cheeses, yoghurt and cream and sell our produce across the South West. We also have an eco-friendly campsite.
We're surrounded by great places to explore, either walking or cycling around the Mendip Hills or visiting place like Wells, Glastonbury, Bath and Bristol.

A chance to learn about dairy goats in a beautiful location. English spoken. A good opportunity for someone who is thinking of setting up their own farm or small holding. We can tell you all about the highs and the lows!
We're looking for help with all aspects of our life. Depending on the time of year...
Feeding and milking goats (March, April is kidding time)
Learn about cheese making (mainly summer months)
Looking after our small veg garden
Help in the house
Childcare - we have 2 lively boys who love to play outside, digging in the garden or playing in the river or just kicking a football around
Flexibility is probably the most important thing!
Accommodation is in our little touring caravan or static caravan. Volunteers can use our bath/shower in our house whenever they like. All food is provided and we all eat together in our house. You have weekends off to go and explore Somerset.
Sorry we can't cater for vegetarians and would prefer a non-smoker.
Plenty of sight seeing nearby and great countryside for exploring by foot or bike.
