The Carefarm brings together the care of the land, environment and animals with care of the people. We welcome anyone who can benefit from being out in the countryside and enjoys taking part in the daily life of a working farm.
Our Philosophy is
‘Tell me and I’ll forget; Show me and I remember; Involve me and I’ll understand.’
Our team provides a therapeutic and educational approach. Individuals have the opportunity to get involved with worthwhile, meaningful activities which stimulate the mind and keep the body active.
The straw built Ecocentre is an excellent environmentally sustainable venue where people can come together in a spirit of mutual support.
Services we provide…
| 1. Quercus Community (Mondays and Wednesdays)
Quercus Community works with young people and adults with learning disabilities on the land, providing horticultural and therapeutic care. A visit to the farm gives individuals and community groups the opportunity to connect with the living environment, interacting with plants and animals to provide a rich hands on experience.
| 2. Gardening club (starting soon)
Gardening is a wonderfully flexible medium that can transform lives.
|3. Farmeco Apple Juice Production At Farmeco have set up a community project looking to start some apple juice production using the apples from our farms and the community.
