We have two farms in Warwickshire, one in the North of the county in Water Orton and one close to Warwick/Leamington Spa in the village of Harbury.
Care farming provides health, social and an educational service for a range of vulnerable groups of people. This includes people with learning disabilities, people with autism, people with mental health problems and people suffering from mild to moderate depression.
We provide a service on a regular basis for participants to attend the farm as part of a structured care, rehabilitation, therapeutic or educational programme. Being fully qualified teachers and having a back ground in teaching in SEN colleges, Katie and Stuart are able to work with people to achieve City & Guilds qualifications whilst attending the farm if they choose to.
We have worked with a variety of people and have seen how the concept of care farming can be beneficial and can improve behaviour, build confidence and relationships with others and most importantly provide a worthwhile activity for people to do each day.
Clients (known as Day farmers to us!) can come to the farm on a weekly or even daily basis and help to look after the animals and take part in all activities on the farm. Some Day Farmers use the farm as a day service, some for trips out, some to just relax and get away from their normal every day life and others to gain a qualification.
Follow us on Facebook or instagram to see what happens at the farm. Search for New Pastures Care Farm. Please take a look at our website as well www.newpasturescarefarm.co.uk Feel free to call us for an informal chat about the service that we offer here at the farm.
Age range:12-16 yrs , 17-18 yrs , 19-24 yrs , 25-44 yrs , 45-64 yrs , 65-74 yrs , 75-84 yrs
A discussion between the farm and clients and parents/carers is essential so that we can discuss how we can help. A 1 hour free taster session is given, to give everyone the opportunity to have a look round before agreeing to come to the farm.
£60 per day
As we are a farm, not all areas are wheelchair accessible, however lots of areas are! so please call us to discuss.
Please feel free to contact us to discuss as we realise each individual is different and has different requirements.
