We rely on the support of our volunteers and
are extremely grateful for their help throughout the year.
We offer work placements, alternative provision placements and general volunteering positions across most areas of the farm. People have the opportunity to learn new skills, use their experience to contribute to the development of the farm and be part of our farm family.
We have volunteer positions to suit everyone – in the gardens, working with animals, in the café, office and the shop, helping with events or keeping the farm clean and well-maintained. We also currently have the opportunity of ‘Site Supporter’ available – helping the farm site to stay open, guiding members of the public with our new one way system, hygiene and social distancing information.
We have also helped many young people with the experiences they need for their Duke of Edinburgh Awards
