December Working Weekend

Fri 8 – Sun 10 December
No charge

This is a chance to get to know the farm, turn your hand to old jobs and new, enjoy good company and good food too!

An opportunity to have bright ideas by the compost heap, happy talk in the hen house, and cool chat in the kitchen. Join us to prove that many hands make light work and that today’s stranger is tomorrow’s friend.

Our Working Weekends are run in the beautiful spirit of the WWOOF organisation: we feed and accommodate you, you work, with us.

This is our Carols by Candlelight weekend, so much of the work will be preparation for this popular event: making mince pies, decorating the Cowshed, serving hot punch, singing carols, and then tidying up afterwards!

Booking has closed for this event
