Leap Farm supports HelpX, and anyone else who wants to volunteer, including those looking for some work experience. Volunteers have their own accommodation in a caravan located overlooking the green hills and valley, although you share a bathroom in the cottage.
Volunteers generally stay for a minimum of 2 weeks, although we treat the first 3 days as a trial period – to make sure that both parties are happy with the arrangement. We expect that you will work hard while you are here, but you will be well looked after in terms of good food, access to free WiFi and friendly hosts.
Jobs include feeding the animals and helping with animal husbandry, milking the goats, fencing, weeding, helping to move animals around the farm, planting trees, and other farm-based jobs. You are expected to contribute to keeping the communal areas of the house to keep it clean and tidy as well.
We are only able to accommodate 2 volunteers at any one time. Contact us for more information if you are interested in volunteering on Leap Farm.
