Volunteering, Kids & Young People
With an ever changing world the importance of farming, conservation of wildlife habitats and and effective maintenance of our natural world have never been more important to our younger generation.
As we are a working farm, our general volunteering roles are currently not suitable for under 16's given the presence of farm machinery and the risks that this can pose to children.
We are however currently putting together some volunteer opportunities for young people to help out at the farm and gain valuable knowledge and experience. For younger children we hope to run family volunteer days where we can safely get the whole family involved.
