Volunteers are absolutely vital to the everyday running of the farm, and we are very grateful to our team of hardworking volunteers who help us with everything from site maintenance to event organisation and animal care. We are always looking for new volunteers to join the team, and we will try to place you in roles closest to your interests but volunteers will be expected to carry out a range of tasks that need completing on the day. Recent tasks have included making a Roman catapult, carving shingle tiles for the Saxon house, trimming goats’ feet and digging an Iron Age herb garden. If you are interested in joining the team, please contact volunteers@butserancientfarm.co.uk and we will get back to you.

We also welcome students on university placements, secondary school work experience students, and young people hoping to gain their Duke of Edinburgh awards.
