We want to provide opportunities for children and adults in vulnerable groups to enjoy working with different kinds of animals and to learn about farming and nature whilst benefiting from the powerful and positive effects of spending quality time in the outdoors. We aim to build confidence and to help people to become more connected with the natural environment, improving mental and physical well-being and developing skills and knowledge.
