Knights Care Farm
Care farming is a day-care service offered to individuals with a range of disabilities or social needs. We teach agricultural skills and enable individuals to enjoy being part of a working farm. We have care plans individually designed to each client and support them to carry out many activities such as growing fruit & vegetables, gardening, and working with the livestock.
Care farming is rewarding to all our clients. Everyone loves to get involved caring for our livestock. We are based on a commercial farm with over 200 ewes, 60 head of cattle, pigs and poultry; depending on ability there is the chance to be involved in herding, mucking out, and feeding. During lambing season, all help in even the simplest of ways with the lambs, some will even have one to one contact bottle feeding orphan lambs. Our care farm is developing all the time, all who come here are part of a team helping the farm to run. It is a really healthy environment for anyone who loves animals and the outdoors.
