December Working Weekend

Fri 6 – Sun 8 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.

Much of the work this weekend will be preparing for our popular Carols by Candlelight event. We’ll make mince pies, decorate the Cowshed, serve hot punch, sing carols, and then tidy up afterwards!

Carols by Candlelight

Sat 7 December
6pm – 7.30pm
Adult £5 • Child £2

An old-fashioned twenty-first century evening in the farmyard and the old cowshed, with all the right seasonal ingredients to eat, drink, see, hear, and sing! A roaring fire to keep us warm; Jake and his performing circus crew; the Swindon Scratch Choir to lift our singing spirits; fire jugglers to juggle fire; and cartloads of carols for us all to sing, together.

This event raises money for the homeless in Swindon at Christmas and local charities. Price includes seasonal hot drink and mince pie.

Suitable for all ages. No need to book. Dress up warm and bring a torch.
