  • Description

    Description

    This is an organic farm run by around 30 of us (plus children). We live in different households that have been adapted from a Georgian manor house and other outbuildings. We garden and farm a large area of land and run occasional events such as singing workshops, yoga etc.

    We are not a commercial enterprise. We work together to produce a significant amount of our own food including meat, milk, eggs, fruit and vegetables.

    Land includes pasture (for dairy cows, sheep, goats, chickens and sometimes pigs and geese), arable fields (producing feed for our animals as well as ourselves), a walled vegetable garden, greenhouse and polytunnels, orchard, a small area of woodland and a lake and garden. We welcome help with all jobs around the place- with the animals, gardening or on the grounds and buildings.

    We generally host up to 3 volunteers for two weeks at a time. We do this about once a month from March through to November.

    We usually ask for 5 hours work per day with 2 full days off each week.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We have been hosting volunteers for almost 40 years now. People seem to like it here... learning a little about community living and helping out with the work about the farm. We prefer that our volunteers are reasonably proficient in speaking English.

    We are in a rural area, seven miles from the nearest town. If you don't have your own transport we can usually sort out lifts into town on days off. Local attractions include nearby small city of Hereford famous for the Mappa Mundi, the book town of Hay on Wye and walking on the Malvern Hills.
