Homegrown Care Farm can provide Animal Therapy Experiences for students with specific educational needs including social, emotional and mental health needs.

We are an inclusive business where every student is valued and we work very hard to help our students develop their skills, knowledge and positive attitudes as well as preparing them for their futures.  We recognise that students are all individuals with different strengths and weaknesses and therefore offer flexible programmes with a wide range of positive experiences to meet the needs of the student.

The Homegrown Care Farm can provide an animal therapy experience for SEN children and young adults by bringing a variety of friendly farm animals to you.  We can cater for various sized groups by arrangement in almost any environment including schools, disability centres and care homes etc.  Each individual student will have the opportunity to stroke/cuddle, groom and feed our animals.  

These sessions are only available as half or full days.

For the mobile animal educational experience we are able to fulfil some important elements of the National Curriculum through fun activities all in a safe environment of your school or centre. 

Time, patience and understanding are our main focus for all of our work.

We currently use our animals to help students prepare for employment and support individual needs.  Tasks vary from day to day and season to season but over the course of time our students will experience a wide range of activities including collecting eggs and raising chicks into chickens, helping to clean, look after and groom a variety of animals, experience shearing sheep, gardening and much more.

We wish to provide effective solutions to health and social problems and our work aims to re-engage people with learning when they are at risk of exclusion, non-attendance or poor mental health and to enhance the well-being when they are isolated or have long term illness.  We cater for pupils whose Statement/ Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) identifies severe and profound learning difficulties including autism.

We have full £10million comprehensive farm insurance both on and off our farm and all our staff have full DBS Enhancements and Photo ID.
