The Shop and Cafe are getting busier and busier as they should (great food - organic, fresh and mainly grown outside the door) and there are often opportunities to join the team.

So if you love the farm, share our ethos and understand that hard work is why we are still here, do get in touch with a cv and letter of interest,in case something is coming up that might suit. Please note that everyone who comes to work here needs to be available for some weekend work as well as in the week and during school holidays.

Cafe Team Helper - Part time including some weekends.

We are looking for someone to join the friendly cafe team at the very busy farmshop cafe.

This would suit someone who has worked in front of house catering before, has a big smile and loves organic food and the public.

Shop Team Helper - Part time.

The friendly shop team is looking for extra help. A 'can do' person who loves organic/local food, is interested in how we farm, likes the public and is equally happy stacking shelves, cleaning, serving customers and generally mucking in.

Tuesdays 9 - 5
Thursdays 8.45 - 5.30
Some weekend work.

NB These are permanent positions and include school holidays. NO smokers only.

If either of these jobs are of interest please email hilary with full cv and letter of interest, explaining why you might like to join us and which job you are interested in.

Please note there is no public transport to the shop and cafe, and as days are sometimes short so realistically this needs to be a local person.
