Pre-Christmas Meat Sale
Come along to the farm on Saturday 6 December from 10am – 3pm and buy your farm fresh traditional breed pork joints, sausages and bacon. The farm shop will be open and selling Christmas goodies. Mulled wine, mince pies and tea and coffee will be available – see you there!
We've added two heifer calves to our cattle herd.
Not long weaned, they'll be spending some time in our stock pens before going out onto the watermeadows.
The farm has a number of volunteer opportunities. Want to get involved?
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!

The farm recently received funding from the Landfill Communities Fund via Community First to build an engineering workshop for the benefit of the farm’s BTEC students and the local community. This build is well underway and will be finished by the end of the year. As a result of this project and the farm’s role as a BTEC centre and Alternative Provider of education to 15/16 year old young people from local schools, the farm was presented with an award for the Most Innovative New Community Run Project or Service 2014 at the Community First AGM on Wednesday 24 September.
