Volunteer Open Days at the Farm

Date(s)
18 - 19 January 2020
Description
nick -farm vol - 700x500

We’re looking for volunteers who can help us bring our Heritage Lottery funded ‘Field to Fork’ story to life and this could be you. Are you interested in the people who lived and worked here at the Farm? Traditional farming methods and machinery? Educating people about where their food comes from and healthy eating? If so, why not come along and find out about The Farm and how you could help out.

We’re looking for confident and sociable people of all ages and backgrounds to help us bring the characters of the Miller, Teamsman and Land Army girl to life, help with family orientated ‘horrible history’ style guided tours of the mill and run some of the Mill Machinery.

A Volunteer is a person who expresses a willingness to undertake a service. Sounds a little daunting! I can assure you, here at the farm it’s anything but! I’ve been a learning and interpretation volunteer for 4 yrs playing the part of Mary Sant who worked as a caretaker of the Estate Offices here on the farm from 1909-1948. I enjoy the diversity the role brings and the comradeship and interaction with other volunteers who play different characters. If you enjoy social and family history, communicating with folk young and not so young, then come and learn more about volunteering here on the farm at Tatton. It’s lots of fun I assure you.
