Team Challenges: Group and Corporate Volunteering

We'd be thrilled to organise a meaningful Volunteering Day (or a few) for your business or organisation, allowing you to purposely get involved in the community, make an impact, create positive change and meet your corporate social responsibility goals.

At the Farm we always need help with a wide range of tasks and projects. The Team Challenge you undertake will depend on the time of year you're attending, the size and ability of the group, your budget and any seasonal priorities.

As well as helping a great local charity, business or organisation volunteering is a great way to connect people who wouldn’t normally work together, it enhances communication, develops team skills and creates opportunities for cross-collaboration that otherwise wouldn't exist.


As a charity, we charge £35 per person to help cover the cost of running your Team Challenge or Group Volunteering Day (or a minimum of £250 per day).

This covers:

  • staff to support your group
  • materials and equipment required for your task
  • supply of protective gear and plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits throughout the day

We're able to work with most budgets therefore if you have a little more, you can choose a larger project or we can tailor the task to suit a smaller budget. If you're tasked with fundraising the money, we can help with ideas, sponsorship forms and publicity.

You can also tailor your day by adding a buffet lunch (at additional cost) from the award winning Farm Café, a guided Farm tour, use of Boiling Wells for an after session BBQ, or hire a breakout room for more formal meeting or training session.

What to expect

Work takes place across all of our sites, and generally focuses on improving our infrastructure, which enables us to deliver our services. Tasks may include:

  • Odd jobs, such as painting the fences, re‐turfing paddocks, reseeding areas for grazing, reskimming paths, oiling the decking, cutting fire wood and much more
  • Erecting wooden fencing around the perimeter of the site which involves a muscle to dig the holes and a keen eye to nail the rails on straight!
  • Site maintenance such as path clearance, weaving willow frames, bracken bashing, bramble removal, clearing nettles etc
  • Improving access to the stage by strengthen the steps, erecting a handrail and laying non‐slip surface strips to the stage
  • Annual maintenance tasks such as painting the toilet, sanding back the wood in kitchen, re‐ varnishing kitchen area
