Description
Our Farm is a 5 acre smallholding on the border of East Devon and West Dorset, 5 miles from the south coast near Lyme Regis. We are 10 minutes walk from Marshwood which has a pub and small shop.
We keep chickens and rare breed Devon Black pigs. We also have a cider apple orchard and vegetable garden. Our aim is to produce enough high quality ingredients such as charcuterie for our catering business and pop-up restaurant as well as local delis and restaurants.
Jobs around the farm could include any of the following: fencing, drainage, laying hedges, working in the vegetable garden, weeding, repairing fencing, some basic carpentry and maintenance of buildings and equipment.
Wwoofers would be expected to work for 6 hours per day with two days off per week. Winter accommodation is in a bedroom in our house with ensuite bathroom. Between April and October, accommodation is in a large tent with proper beds. We will provide all meals, some self-catered.
This is best suited to a pair of friends or a couple.
