We are looking for someone who is willing to pitch in, clean and help wherever is needed to ensure our farm maintains a high level of animal welfare.  If you are interested in joining our fantastic farm please send in your CV, OR a letter explaining why you think you would be right for the job, to by Monday 31st January 2022.  Interviews will be held shortly after.
