Little gate farm is a training and skills development farm for learning disabled adults. Through the day to day running of the farm and managing of the woodland we teach practical employment skills, self confidence and team work.
Our program is non-residential and our learners come in via our minibus from neighbouring towns. We have a varied selection of animals. Sheep, pigs, goats, horses, alpacas, ducks,rabbits,chickens and geese. Our animals have a very high standard of living and their care and welfare is a high priority.we also have a large horticulture project, various craft making projects, and social enterprise activities.

We are looking for someone or a couple with an interest in care farming, and skills development, who can feed the animals in the mornings and evenings and help out on the farm.

The farm is in an area of outstanding natural beauty, half of which is ancient woodland. We managed the farm ecologically as a shared responsibility,and we have higher level stewardship through natural England.
We are a small happy,friendly team loving what we do, if you would like to come and be part of it, please get in touch.
