Are you passionate about food, do you love growing your own or harbour dreams of owning a small holding one day? Then the National Trust’s new experiment, MyFarm, could be right up your street.
The National Trust are looking for up to 10,000 people to take part in a mass on-line public farming experiment where they will make key decisions at one of the Trust’s working farms at Wimpole in Cambridgeshire.
The Wimpole Farm Manager, Richard Morris, will set monthly options for his farmers, you’ll understand how food is produced, debate and vote on what to grow, which animals to buy and rear and learn what it’s truly like to run an organic farm.
A small subscription fee applies which includes a family ticket to visit the farm for a day and a daily behind-the-scenes insight into how the 1,200 acre organic farm operates.
If you’d like to find out more or sign up to secure your place as a MyFarm Farmer, visit www.my-farm.org.uk
