Workplace Visits

We are a not-for-profit social enterprise based in the Chew Valley working to provide affordable, nutritious and environmentally-friendly food across Bristol, Bath and the surrounding area. All of our profits fund learning and therapeutic activities for local children, adults and vulnerable people.

Visit The Farm with your organisation to show your support for a local social enterprise, provide valuable volunteering and get access to our beautiful lakeside farm. Perfect for away days, all just a short drive from both Bristol and Bath.

Be sure to check out our workplace packages as a fantastic way to give back to the community.

Volunteering & Experience Days

Joining in with our activities at The Farm is a fantastic way to help us provide organic produce locally while learning about farming and nature. It’s also great for team-building and personal development in beautiful countryside surroundings. We invite you to join the Farm in our day-to-day activities, either  as a Farmer or Wildlife Ranger. You can also give staff the opportunity to try their hand at being a Chef or Organic Gardener or help them connect with nature on our beautiful patch of Earth.

Prices start from as little as £45pp for a full day or £30pp for a half day.

Explore different Experience Days at the farm.

Venue Hire

We can also provide exclusive access to our stunning roundhouse and outdoor learning area, set amongst beautiful plantings and with a view over Chew Valley lake: the perfect location to get away from the office into our stunning local countryside. We are able to provide teas, coffees and an organic lunch.

Health & Safety

All of our Experience Days have been risk assessed by members of staff. Any external facilitators on the farm have also completed their own risk assessments of activities. We’ll provide you with a Health and Safety induction and Risk Assessment. We also have public liability insurance in place.

Site Accessibility

While we do have accessible areas and facilities for wheelchair users and people with restricted mobility, much of our site is not yet suitable for those in wheelchairs.

Covid-19

We have designed specific site-based practices to minimise the risk of Covid-19 transmission on the farm. You will be provided with these before your visit, and given an induction explaining these practices on your arrival.

Volunteer Farmer for a Day practicalities

Because of the unpredictable nature of farming, it can be hard to judge what we’ll be doing in advance. We won’t be able to provide an exact picture of what we’ll be doing on the day – but can give you an outline based on time of year, how our crops are doing and the weather forecast. While you will be supported and given guidance throughout the day, groups need to be supervised or self-directed enough to not need constant supervision by Community Farm staff.
