Farm Hands 8-11yr olds

Farm Hands


Farm temporarily closed to the public between Monday 23rd March and Monday 4th May 2020

After careful consideration, and in the light of current Government guidance regarding Covid 19, we have reluctantly decided to temporarily close the farm to the public from Monday 23rd of March until Monday 4th May, subject to review in mid April. During this period all of our groups, activities, events, courses, sales and room bookings will be suspended and volunteers and placements will not be attending the farm. This is a temporary measure and the farm will open again as soon as possible. The recruitment for the Community Farm Worker (Sundays) post below is still going ahead.

We are very sorry for any inconvenience this causes.

Would you like to learn new things and make new friends? Learn about and help look after the animals? Would you like to come and help out on the farm as a Farm Hand at the weekends?

We have places available for local (Lawrence Weston, Shirehampton, Seamills and Avonmouth) 8 - 11yr olds who are in need of positive activities.

Farm Hands work in a small team with a dedicated member of farm staff to help look after the animals, gardens and woodland and contribute to the community farm in many ways. Places are free and last 6 months.

The Farm Hands Project is funded by BBC Children in Need and is aimed at children in need of positive activities.
