Farm Volunteer Wanted

A student basket weaving

An opportunity has arisen at the Pennine Camphill Community to join our farmer and the farm team on a mixed livestock farm with varied responsibilities for feeding, farm’s tractor work and assisting with the general running of the farm. Field work/lambing and hay carting during the peak harvest period. In addition the role will involve assisting students with learning difficulties and working as part of the farm team during college times.

This farm is primarily set up for education and community support and consequently has students and other volunteers during term time. Due to the nature of this role the successful applicant will be required to undertake a DBS check (CRB). We are looking for a motivated individual, with a good sense of humour who can adapt and thrive in a people & livestock environment. A wider working knowledge of agriculture would be an advantage. This is a volunteer position, initially for 1 year, with reimbursements and accommodation on site in one of our houses.
