My role involves the daily management and running of Standalone Farm from an operational point of view, with my main focus being the events programme.
My favourite thing about working at the Farm is the diversity that comes with the role, I can be organising a birthday party one day and the next be helping with the bottle feeding of the lambs. I also love that it’s a mix of being indoor and outside.
Favourite animal: Posey the pony.
Junior Manager – Retail
I order all the fun shop stock for the farm and ensure the daily operations are organised and running smoothly.
Favourite animal: Is one of our lovely cows!
Junior Manager – Catering
My role involves managing the catering operation at Standalone Farm. A new and exciting experience, with local industry and leisure.
Favourite animal: Without doubt, Jim the shire horse.
Day to day I get involved with making coffee and other odd jobs.
I love seeing how excited the children are to visit the Farm!
Favourite animal: The goats.
I help with the daily running of the customer facing operations- ticket sales, food and drink preparation in the café, general cleaning and tidying around the farm. I also host birthday parties and supervise events including arts and crafts, and animal handling.
I love that everyday can present different things and you get to enjoy the fresh air and animals. The staff are all friendly, even the farmers, we are a close-knit bunch. Also, the regulars are lovely to have a natter with!
Favourite animal: The cows! I see them as gentle beings and I’m obsessed with their ‘sandpaper’ tongues and slimy noses!
Don't miss a thing
