Get your team out of the office and into the fresh air for a different kind of team-building day, and help your Community Farm at the same time! We can organise a hands-on, practical and active team-building day for your organisation. And we can provide refreshments and lunch, much of it made from our own farm produce. Please get in touch to discuss what your group would like to do!

Tasks are varied according to the season and what needs doing on the farm, but in the past have included:

  • Building a fruit cage
  • Painting chicken sheds
  • Preparing ground for planting
  • Harvesting potatoes
  • Making compost
  • Weeding
  • Sowing seeds
  • Tree planting

Tasks are on a rotation and each task is led by one of our knowledgeable growers or volunteers. It’s hard work but previous attendees have enjoyed being out in the fresh air and getting to know their colleagues in a completely different environment, as well as making a great contribution to our farm. And we can reward you with a delicious lunch!

  • Virginia and Ben
    Virginia returned to volunteer on the farm for a second time, for ten weeks, and Ben for his third time, for two weeks. It's always lovely to have wwoof volunteers come back to us and help again.
  • Spring cleaning the farm shop

  • Christmas farmers' market
    To support the turning on of St. Just's Christmas lights, and the walking nativity, the farmers' market opened for the evening of Friday 13th December, offering all the usual stalls, plus mulled wine and mince pies, with a special guest appearance by the incredible Pendeen Silver Band playing carols.
