We have a family run smallholding with a mixture of grassland, livestock and vegetable production. We have Kerry Hill sheep, pigs, chickens, ducks, geese, a goat and a donkey and we are currently working towards the Code of Practice to start our care farm to support a range of client needs. Following successful grant application to the NHS Mental Health Partnership we are now able to offer our services free of charge for two days per week for anyone suffering from mental health illnesses. Booking essential for morning or afternoon sessions on Wednesdays and Thursdays. All other times by agreement. We opened on 11 October 2017, with our grand Opening Day on World Mental Health Awareness Day on October 10th.
