We are dedicated to training the next generation of farmers to ensure food security for the future. After both having gone to school to learn about farming, we believe that the best way to learn how to become a farmer is to work on a farm. There is an open policy on knowledge at our farm and all questions will be answered to the best of our ability, to facilitate the learning process.
We hope that you will want to return to work at the farm for years to come, which is why we do everything we can to offer the most rewarding and fulfilling experience possible.
