Live-in, part-time Butchery Assistant on Organic Farm

Bulstone Springs Farm is a small organic high-welfare poultry farm in East Devon. We rear chickens for eggs and meat, and perform all the processing in our on-site abattoir and butchery facility.

We are looking for a Butchery Assistant to join us on a ‘WWOOFER’ volunteer basis: working part time, 2 days/15 hours per week in return for a beautiful location connected to power with access to WiFi, kitchen, shower-room and outside compost loo, plus regular shared meals.

The work involves gutting, jointing and packing chickens (no slaughtering or plucking). Experience isn’t vital - we will train you - but the work is skilled and demanding, so you need to be an enthusiastic learner, hard-working, dextrous, reliable and hygienic. Level 2 hygiene certificate is desirable but training can be provided.

We are keen to find someone who would relish an opportunity to be part of a developing organic permaculture farm and community on a longer-term basis. Couples considered too. We have other interesting projects in the pipeline which the right person(s) might also want to get involved in. There is ample paid work available locally.

If you have experience and/or a keen interest in permaculture, sustainable farming and living; if you love nature, music, conversation, and enjoy your own space as well as the company of others - we would love to hear from you!
