Student Vet Placement.
We have for many years welcomed vet students here to complete their poultry placement here either for a week or two weeks or longer if needed. We cover the whole range of the life cycle of poultry here at the farm , with many different species . As a small team you will get a real hands on experience and work alongside all of us here over the period of your visit. We have had students from Bristol , Liverpool and The Royal Vet College. Our placements get booked well in advance so please reserve your weeks with us as soon as possible as we can only accommodate on placement at a time. We can offer accomadation although this is not always available.
We can offer apprenticeships in agriculture and animal husbandry. Our apprenticeships have gone on to work here at the farm and gain successful employment elsewhere. Contact us direct or go through your college.
We are always looking for additional help here on the far , Young or old if you have a particular interest in anything we do here and wish to learn some new skills , or teach us !! We have had volunteers here working in our poultry shop , helping with husbandry of the animals , helping with maintenance and our environment around the farm , namely gardening , tree work , fencing etc …the list is endless.
We are currently planning and planting a food forest under the permaculture umbrella . We also run a small market garden under the no dig principles. So there is a lot going on …if you feel you would like to join our team as a volunteer we would love to hear from you .
