We aim to provide the space and projects for therapy in the creation of food and the provision of food to those who need it. We have a 13 Acre "Food Factory" which focuses on growing alongside therapy, a Community Farm which will grow after our "Isolation Fields" have started up the growing area - providing a safe place for people to isolate and many other projects.
We focus on working on the land being a therapy in itself as well as inviting others to offer on-site therapy to promote what they do themselves.
We also aim to promote the growth and creation of medicinal herbs and plants alongside the therapeutic properties of actually growing them and the sensory therapies to those without sight.
Facilities: Cafe, Volunteering, Shop, Community space for hire, Picnic area, Community recycling/composting, Play activities, Incubator for schools, Holiday activities, Wildlife area, Sustainable/Green building on site

Details of livestock and rare breeds kept:
When we open we will include various animals which are part of the Community Farm. They will mostly be kept for animal handling experience and pets. As part of the Food Factory we will be breeding animals for food. We already have a herd of goats including the rare breed Arapawas and we will be adding pigs, llamas and other smallholding animals to those already here.
We are just off the A40 on the Llansteffan Road. We are a private road off of the Llansteffen Road, just opposite Green Castle Woods Car Park. You will pass two houses and come to a big barn. We are the big barn and the lands around. There is a bus route which stops at Green Castle Woods Car Park.
