Thornwood Alpacas & Care Farm
We are a care farm located in Bronte hills near Haworth with around 100 acres of grassland, 6 acres of beech woodland and access to Haworth Moorland. We run educational and therapeutic sessions for young people and adults with learning disabilities, ASD and mental health problems. We facilitate sessions on a long and short term basis for small groups, one to one and full day programmes to enable people to learn new skills, meet new people and build confidence. We deliver sessions to meet AQA Unit Awards in Animal Care, Agriculture, Horticulture and Outdoor Learning and will soon be running higher level qualifications too.
We currently (Dec 2019) house alpacas, Lleyn and coloured ryeland sheep, hens, ducks, peafowl, boer coats, beef cattle, dogs an cats.
