Keveral Farm has been a community since 1973. We live in a farmhouse, a barn conversion, an extended static caravan, and 3 other static caravans. These, together with our farm buildings, are owned and managed by our housing co-op, One Community. Members should attend monthly community meetings, and do at least 2 hours voluntary work per week, maintaining and improving the house, buildings and land. The 30 acres of land consists of veg plots, polytunnels, soft fruit, orchard, woodland, meadow and camping. The land has been certified organic by the Soil Association for more than 30 years. Our worker’s co-op, Keveral Farmers, oversees the management of the land. Most members rent areas of the land or buildings to pursue their own projects or commercial activities, which include vegetables, salads, soft fruit, woodland management and firewood, and managing a campsite. We have done weekly veg box deliveries to local people since 1997. We have a Visitor’s Barn which is used for yoga, table tennis, events and group visits. We host WWOOFers and working visitors by arrangement. Further information on Keveral Farm is available on our website.

Keveral Farm Community is currently looking for new members

Keveral Farm is not currently (May 2021) looking for new members – but if we were, you should be easy to live with, responsible, self-reliant, eco-minded, and willing and able to get involved and take on responsibilities. Co-ops are about everyone participating – we are not just a place to live !

Keveral Farm Community is currently looking for volunteers

We sometimes take enthusiastic volunteers who want to help with our veg growing and other jobs. A good level of self-reliance is needed by volunteers.
