Our Orchard is an uncertified biodynamic smallholding near Dartington in South Devon. We produce vegetables and fruit, and we have a few ducks and chickens. Much of the work is done by a dedicated team of volunteers who help out on thursdays during the growing season. All our produce is either eaten on site or given away and we are funded by individual donations. The site is hidden in a secluded valley but only 3 or 4 miles from Totnes and Buckfastliegh. This year we are constructing a small cob building and we're looking for extra help with this as well as with the regular garden work. For more info see our website. Please note that our facilities are basic. We have a compost toilet and an outdoor hot shower. We also have an outdoor kitchen and 12v solar for charging mobile phones but we dont have internet although the mobile phone signal is good. The caravan's are pretty old and shabby, but we hope that the hospitality and good and plentiful food make up for it.
