In the autumn of 2013 we will be working with the Gloucestershire Wildlife trust and other volunteers to lay 150 yards of traditional hedge. This will complete the work done over the last two years on the eastern boundary of one of the lower pastures. Please contact us if you would like to come along.
Farming, Woodland and WWOOFing Opportunities
Throughout the farming year there are varied opportunities to join in with the range of projects we are planning. There is always regular daily animal work with the Cows, Sheep and Horses and also in the farm vegetable garden which is run by a group of about a dozen local families.
Lambing Spring 2014
Live in help very much needed please during late February, the whole of March 2014 and first half of April. Experience not essential. Will suit observant, hard working individual or couple. We have 40 ewes lambing and 17 Beef cows calving in March plus routine work with our horses and the farm garden.
We are also members of WWOOF so you may have seen our request for help on their web site or newsletter as well.
Woodland Coppicing February and March 2014
There are 43 acres of mixed species (mainly Beech) ancient woodland along the top edge of the farm. 5 acres of this is thoroughly neglected old Hazel coppice. In early 2014 we will be re-planting the fourth coop and fencing it against the deer. Please do come and join us if you would like to help.
