Helping around the farm
Our free range chickens provide regular daily work on our farm. Residents are encouraged to learn how to look after the chickens, collect the eggs, and grade, label and box them before helping to deliver them to our customers and retail outlets.
Other animals include four alpacas, a selection of ducks, two male peacocks, a Sulcarta Tortoise called Steve, and numerous birds housed in a large aviary, all kept within a purpose built area called Hero’s Corner.
Our working farm environment enables our residents to learn valuable skills in animal husbandry as well as aspects of land management, it also develops teamwork skills. We have access to two friendly horses stabled here.
Residents also have the opportunity to learn to drive the small tractor, which is in constant use around the farm.
