A unique opportunity to live and learn on our farm... 

We are looking for people to come and live on our farm during our busy seasons Autumn and Spring. We provide a WWOOFer style arrangement with comfortable accommodation and nutritious food in exchange for a few hours of volunteering each day. You will learn the ins and outs of running a small scale regenerative poultry and bee hive operation including brooding baby chicks, broiler husbandry and processing, looking after pasture-raised laying hens, egg cleaning + packing + distributing, farmers markets, natural beekeeping with Warré top bar hives, plus opportunity to potter around in our organic homestead garden and any light carpentry or maintenance jobs that come up. You don't need any prior farm experience, but a willingness to learn and apply yourself.
