5 Years ago, the farm was an overgrown rubbish-strewn piece of land.
See a summary of what we've done here.
Looking after and training our Donkeys
We are looking for volunteers to groom our donkeys and hoof pick their feet on a regular basis. We would also like to improve the donkeys' social skills and would want them to be haltered and walked and perhaps even ridden at some stage. Experience with donkeys and/or horses is essential.
We are looking for Farm Leaders with a few hours to spare a week to lead school parties (mainly primary schools) and community groups such as brownies and scouts around the farm. Visits are usually in the morning for around 2.5 hours and involve 3 or 4 farm leaders. Training will be given.
At the moment our shop sells our own free-range eggs and honey and stocks a range of local produce. On the cafe side we currently provide tea, coffee, snacks and lunches. We require volunteers able to cover one or two days or half days a week and occasional Saturday mornings. Shop staff should be cheerful, confident and numerate and able to work independently. We would prefer those with experience in retail. Hrs: 9am – 4.30pm or by arrangement.
Are you a builder or carpenter or other tradesperson with a bit of time to spare or retired and looking for something to do? The farm is always in need of people who can be called on to come and help with building projects and we would love your help!
