Project Farm

Project farm was established in 2010 after Mark had worked in crisis care units for many years and wanted to carry on helping young people and his passion for animals knowing their therapeutic benefits for young people. 

Project Farm engages young people in learning, helping them to build confidence and self-esteem through vocational training and meaningful work. Being on a real farm is very motivating for young people disengaged from mainstream education by helping them develop social and practical life skills and increased self-confidence and esteem. We encourage self-esteem whilst having fun and social interaction in small supportive groups.

Project farm prides itself on tailoring the day to meet individual students needs and building self-confidence and self-belief to give them the very best opportunity to reach their full potential. Our mission is to provide a safe, welcoming environment where students can develop a wider personal, social and emotional awareness. Students can also learn practical, transferable skills and the opportunity to access ASDAN short course on Animal care and land based. 

We have a wide range of animals to include goats, cows, sheep, pigs, pony and poultry. The students get hands on with all the animals including feeding, mucking out and general husbandry. The students also get to engage in practical skills such as fencing, woodwork, building and general farm maintenance.
