Our activities focus on:
Volunteer with us!
Do you 1 - 2 hours spare time a week or a month?
We have plenty of volunteering opportunities ranging from helping with our sheep, cattle or hens to supporting communications or assisting at Farmers Markets.
We have regular groups on farm including agricultural students from schools and universities, children with behavioural issues and those with poor mental health.
We also provide practical experience for schools offering vocational qualifications in agriculture and animal care.
We have over 100 visits a year from schools and community groups. With a qualified teacher on staff we tailor-make visits to your needs.
Try our Field-to-Fork workshops, woodland activities and pond dipping: we can structure your visits to tie in with your learning objectives.
We also have a catering kitchen which offers children the chance to learn cooking skills and enjoy eating what they've made.
By buying our meat you support our charitable activities enabling us to provide a purposeful,
therapeutic learning environment.
We sell organic pasture-fed beef and organic lamb all year, as well as geese, eggs and vegetables on a seasonal basis.
Visit our on-line shop and buy from the comfort of your own home. You can have orders delivered or pick up from the farm.
