Work Experience

We now offer work experience on our family farm for those wishing to work within the areas of animal care, food, farming and the environment.

Work experience and volunteering

Our farm near Market Drayton is ideal for offering work experience and volunteering opportunities throughout the year. Throughout the years we’ve worked closely with local schools in the Shropshire, Staffordshire and Cheshire counties to provide a taster of working life outdoors. 

There is a wide range of physical and outdoor jobs that are undertaken on a day to day basis at the farm and seasonal work is undertaken as and when the season’s demand. If you would like to know more, please get in touch.

Park Hill Farm is happy to welcome volunteers of all ages and abilities, and structures programmes to help build your confidence within the working world of agriculture in Shropshire. 

Homestead courses: The Good Life

We have now introduced short homestead courses at Park Hill Farm for those of you wishing to ‘live the good life’ and sustain your own green smallholding.   We can offer accommodation here, in Shropshire,  for a mid-week course of two days, and we also offer a one-day course. 

Working with schools

If you are a school teacher who has a student who would like a regular placement with us on the farm, then please get in touch with us to discuss this in detail.  We also take students for one week at a time, to gain experience in a wide variety of subjects, including veterinary, farming, animal welfare, and the environment.
