The Experience

Your day will start with feeding the animals, making sure they are medicated, enriched and happy. We must ensure that their areas are clean, that they have enough water, warm beds and are not displaying any physical or behavioural signs of discomfort or distress. We'll need you to be physically fit, listen well and learn quickly. We rely on people who are happy to get dirty, stuck in and stay motivated under stressful and challenging conditions.

I had the most incredible month here at MLPR. It went by so fast and was an absolutely unforgettable experience. This place and all the animals will be in my heart forever, and I hope to one day return to the farm :) I met so many wonderful people which has made my time here even better. But don't underestimate the work, it can be very physically and mentally draining at times, especially if you've never worked on a farm before (like me), but it's so, so worth it. I recommend MLPR to everyone, you won't regret it!

This was a really sweet experience. Getting to directly work with animals is something I've always wanted to do and I'm grateful to be able to help. The work can be very hard and I do recommend patience as your body adjusts, but it was also heartwarming to be able to help such sweet beings. Everyone is welcoming and helpful . If you don't mind hard work in basic settings I would suggest it. Thanks to everyone at this lovely place.
