What is Social Farming?

Social farming is the therapeutic use of farming practices. Social farming provides: 

  • Health, social or educational care services for individuals from one or a range of vulnerable groups.

  • A supervised, structured programme of farming-related activities, including animal husbandry (livestock, small animals, poultry), crop and vegetable production, woodland management etc.

  • Services on a regular basis for participants, where clients/participants attend the farm regularly as part of a structured care, rehabilitation, therapeutic or educational programme.
