You can view and apply for our current vacancies below. 

Join Our Board of Trustees

A subsidiary of Tyne Housing Association, Ouseburn Farm Charity Ltd. is a registered charity, a community-spirited place where learning, enrichment and personal growth are offered freely to whoever needs it.


With a working community farm, café and retail space,  we offer a range of opportunities for local people, providing a truly unique environment in Newcastle upon Tyne’s Ouseburn Valley.


We are looking for enthusiastic people to become trustees of our charity.  These are unpaid positions, although we can pay reasonable out-of-pocket travel expenses.


Board meetings are generally held in the late afternoon although we may have occasional meetings/events outside office hours.  Our board currently meets quarterly.


In addition to the main board meetings, board members are invited to join a number of subcommittees and working groups that support the farm’s activities. 


If you have a passion for making a difference and the willingness to give time and commitment then we want to hear from you.  We are looking for people with experience in finance, adult social care, hospitality and catering, capital development or general commercial expertise.  We particularly welcome applications from BME candidates and other underrepresented groups.


Are you interested, would you like to know more? If so please contact Farm Manager Hugh Stolliday, Tel 0191 2323 698 or email hugh.stolliday@ouseburnfarm.org.uk


If you would like to apply, send your CV via email to Hugh at the email address above. 


The closing date for applications is the 5th March 2021

Volunteering Roles

Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 and the current lockdown, all volunteering is on hold at the moment apart from a handful of volunteers helping us out with the animals.  This includes the recruitment of new volunteers.

Please feel free to contact our volunteer coordinator if you would like to find out more information about volunteering in future: stewart.turnbull@ouseburnfarm.org.uk

We will be updating this page as and when we receive further Government guidance.

the mantra we live by

This is a place for growing.

Plants, fruit and veg, animals, but most of all, people.

We cultivate joy here. And learning.

We nurture self-confidence and a sense of belonging.

You’ll feel it as soon as you walk through our door.

Lives are being enriched. Needs are being nourished.

It couldn’t happen without our volunteers. Or your donations.

We’re a charity. Run for people, not for profits.

A community-spirited place where everyone is welcome. And valued.

This is a happy place.

A wholesome place. A human place.
