Our placements, training courses, cafe and green tourism will build on the experience of our Managing Director, Jennie Street, in running a similar service - where its quality attracted a wide range of people to take advantage of the offerings.
A placement at RHUBARB FARM will mean more than just coming to work - it will generate social capital and attract a wide base of customers.
RHUBARB FARM will be small and local in nature - flexible to meet customers' demands. We will not only be concerned with maximising profit, but also with creating a social and working environment that suits its customers and users.
RHUBARB FARM will be a local aagriculture-based social enterprise serving the locality. Its basic priciple is to improve the quality of lives of people in and around Bolsover.
None of our produce will travel far - low food miles and really fresh produce
