Hi

I am from Thurrock, Essex and hoping to set up my own smallholding in the future and currently looking for part time paid work/voluntary work on a smallholding/farm local to me. Please get in touch if you can help at all.

Thanks!

 :wave:  Welcome from  :raining:  Shropshire.  What a good idea to get some experience first.  We're too far of course, but hope you manage to get something.

Have a look at WWOOF - there are some cracking WWOOF hosts in your part of the world.  Priceless experience.  I speak as one who knows - I WWOOFed extensively in 2004/5 and in 2006 I bought a farm with a friend - who I'd met when I'd WWOOFed for her on her previous farm (that one tenanted.)  :)  WWOOF changes lives.  :thumbsup:
Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

Live in a cohousing community with small farm for our own use.  Dairy cows (rearing their own calves for beef), pigs, sheep for meat and fleece, ducks and hens for eggs, veg and fruit growing

Hiya,

You might try Pets Corner in Harlow for voluntary work (disclosure is I am the chair of the support trust there) but there is a waiting list for volunteers.

You might also want to look at some short courses at writtle college which would help.

I have a smallholding in Epping, but I don't think I'm experienced enough to guide you....all the work here is pure grunt work :D
