Volunteers needed to run the Cafe at Weekends

We hope to be opening the Cafe at weekends during the summer months. However, in order to do so we need to recruit a team of volunteers to run it. If you would like to help, please contact Ian, the farm's Volunteer Coordinator at, or ring 0117 9381128.

Current and future activities based in the Cafe

We are currently using the Cafe to deliver various sessions, activities and groups including:

Farm Tots (Wednesdays 10.30 - 11.30)

A regular weekly session for toddlers between 18 months - 4 years old accompanied by a parent or carer to experience the farm and help feed the animals, followed by refreshments in the cafe. This is an informal, drop in session and there is no need to book in advance, but feel free to contact Helen at, or ring 0117 9381128 if you would like to know more about Farm Tots.

Cost: £2.50

Scoop Cooking Club (Thursdays, 12.30 - 3.00pm)

Weekly sessions enabling local parents, careers and their children to learn more about preparing delicious, wholesome food and enjoy a communal meal. Take home what you make and more! Every week we will get a delivery of surplus food from across Bristol and decide what to make together! Spaces are limited, so please contact Rachel Davies on or 07392 108886 Cost: a suggested donation of between £2.00 - 4.00 per adult.

Farm Hands (Saturdays & Sundays)
