  • David Kirkby

    Dave is a volunteer who wants to “learn by doing” at a vegan organic farm like ours. David’s long-term goal is to “be as fit as Sir Chris Bonington at 80 and still working in-field, in nutritional agro-forestry, even on the day [his] body decides to become compost :)”.

  • Arek Adamczak

    Arek joined the team as Lead Grower and he is here with his wife Adelia and son of 3, Arvo. Arek has extensive experience in growing, machinery, field work and will rise to the challenge of managing parts of the farm in time, leading the staff team in agricultural jobs. We wish Arek and his family a warm Welcome and easy settling in.
