How do I get to know about shifts at the farm?
We communicate via a staff Facebook page – this is the best way to keep up to date with what’s happening. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1754946591396229/
When we have a wedding or event which we need staff for, we create an ‘event’ in the staff Facebook page – you just confirm whether you can attend or not. Harry Bithell will then sort out the rotas and communicate them out to everyone.
In case of any queries with shifts or working hours etc. please speak to either Gilly Hoy or Rachel Cleary.
Where do you put your belongings?
We have lockers provided either in the female toilets in the main building or in the staff part of the Barn corridor for your use. Just remember to empty them at the end of a shift.
What should I do during downtime?
We don’t employ cleaners at the farm – cleaning is everyone’s responsibility. Therefore the slogan we use is ‘if you are leaning you should be cleaning’.
What can I expect from my role?
You can expect to receive training, experience, good food and lots of fun. You get tips, the use of a leg massager whilst on duty (!), we have team nights out and team building activities plus you get to listen to live music on nearly every shift!
Honestly we really do want our staff to be happy when they work at the farm, as if you are happy this will show in your customer service. If something isn’t quite right, please speak to Gilly or another supervisor. We can also talk with you in confidence if you wish. When you leave we WILL provide everyone with a reference.
How do I clock in and out?
Please make sure that if you use more than one clock in card that they are pinned together and write your name on the top of each card.
