Farm-ability provides therapeutic activities and work experience for adults with learning disabilities and autism on a working livestock farm. 

We believe that adults with learning disabilities and autism should have access to meaningful activities that improve their well-being and increase their independence, enabling them to participate actively in their communities.

FarmAbility co-farmers are actively involved throughout the year in vegetable growing, orchard management, horse care, animal husbandry, woodwork, an organic egg enterprise, and a range of seasonal farm tasks. We look for opportunities to engage with our local community where co-farmers can create more social connections. Working in small groups supported by a fantastic team of staff, volunteers and students, co-farmers gain a real sense of purpose and achievement, while building the practical and vocational skills they need to move forward in their lives.
