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!

  • Gate-posts for our new entrance
    Work on our new entrance is continuing, sited in a safer location further up the hill, with a new car-park for five cars. Yesterday we relocated a pair of old granite gate-posts, neither of which had been used for several years (one of them was even lying down in the yard), to flank the new […]

  • National Tree Week
    As part of National Tree Week, on Monday 25th November we planted the first 50 of 200 native trees planned for this winter. The first 50 were planted by local volunteers around our new car-park and entrance, to screen the car-park whilst providing a food source for birds. We planted blackthorn, hawthorn, dogwood, guelder rose, […]
