Description
We are Ben and Vicky Lyons. We have a small farm in a very rural location on the Mendip Hills - 15miles to Bath, Bristol and Glastonbury. We grow and dry Calendula flowers to infuse into plant oils and make natural skincare products. We also grow vegetables, raise sheep, and occasionally pigs and cows mostly for our own consumption.

We need help picking flowers and loading dryers. There is also work to be done in the garden, around the farm and looking after animals.

We generally follow organic standards, although we are not certified. We have a no dig policy in the garden and use many permaculture ideas.

We have a caravan for woofers to sleep in near to the house with access to the house for bathing, and use of the toilet. Also plenty of space for parking and camping. Electricity available

We love to get together for meals (we do eat well) but long hours and a young daughter prevent much evening socialising for us.
