What we offer

As an educational smallholding we offer a range of services and ways to get involved.

  • Schools

We accept referrals from schools and other agencies to support students who would benefit from access to an outdoor, hands on, and practical learning environment. Our primary aim is to support students with their social and emotional wellbeing, while providing students an opportunity to learn a range of valuable life skills.

Students learn how to care for small animals like rabbits and guinea pigs. We have a range of woodworking projects like building bird boxes and chicken coops, outdoor cooking over our firepit, and for those students inquisitive about learning where their food comes from – they can get involved in growing vegetables and the raising and care of our livestock.

Every student has a personalised plan to track their achievements.

We also offer animal therapy and bereavement counselling and our support and engagement is not time limited.

For more information you can contact Helen McGloughlin (DSL and School Liaison) on 07754 315 387

  • Home Education

We offer home education sessions on Mondays throughout the year.

Students get hands on experience caring for our animals and also enjoy lots of forest school activities.

These sessions run from 10am – 2pm and must be booked in advance. To book a session please get in touch.

  • Holiday Clubs

During the summer holidays we run holiday clubs sessions.

These are more relaxed days where children can enjoy being around our animals and get hands on experience with them. We also have forest school activities and plenty of fun and games. To book a place please email us or check out our facebook page for more information.

  • Volunteering, Work Experience and DofE

If you are 16+ and would like to help out and volunteer your time, or if you are looking for work experience with animals, please get in touch. We also work with students who are undertaking their Duke of Edinburgh Award.
