One year for the Café
In April we will be celebrating one full year since our lovely new Café and Farm Shop opened.
Café@TheFarm has already established itself as a popular meeting place for the community.  We are delighted at how well it has been received.  If you haven’t visited us yet, pop in for cake and sample our delicious range of teas and coffees, or have lunch with a glass of prosecco (the café is licenced!).
In the farm shop we also have a lovely range of fragranced Handwash and Hand/Body Lotions that have been produced by our BTEC students as part of a mini-enterprise project. They smell divine, would make great gifts AND will raise money for the farm!  
Tel 01722 332749
Tues – Fri 10am to 4pm. Sat & Sun 10am – 4pm. Mondays Closed.

Caretaker – We are looking for someone reliable who can help out around the farm with general caretaking duties to include setting up rooms for school visits and hirings, keeping the farm and shared areas tidy, helping at events etc.  We anticipate that this would be a part paid and part voluntary position of around 4 hours a week.  Would suit someone retired or semi-retired.
