We have a family run farm on the outskirts of a somerset village, in the heart of the levels. We are building the infrastructure for our free-range duck and goose meat business. We are setting up incubation areas, brooding areas, fencing free-range areas and building animal shelters. We also have a large vegetable area for our own use, and a commercial asparagus (half acre field), which needs weeding and maintaining. We have several Polytunnels which need erecting. There are a few rare breed pigs and sheep which need feeding and cleaning out . Basic care of the ducks and geese and egg collection is a daily job. We need people with enthusiasm to get involved and work hard and enjoy making things happen. Anyone with building or strimming experience will be especially useful. Please do not come if you do not intend to put in lots of energy, as we have limited space and need enthusiastic workers! We have comfortable accommodation.
Healthy food, interesting work and sociable weekends living and working together as a member of our family.
