What We Do

Care Farming

Our care farming services focus on human health and wellbeing, notably the many benefits – physical, mental, social and spiritual – that come from working with animals, plants, soil and other people.

In idyllic and accessible surroundings, we offer a range of activities with small supervised groups of up to 3-4 individuals.

Funded by various parts of the Irish Church, our groundbreaking CARE (Care farming for Asylum Seekenrs, Refugees and the Environment) project is the first of its kind to work with this service user group in Northern Ireland.

One care farming session of up to 5 hours costs £150 per session.

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

Through our CSA activities we aim to provide good, affordable food in the form of free range meat and seasonal chemical-free vegetables.  CSA suscribers will also have the chance to be involved in their food production and get behind-the-scenes access and updates.  In this way, we’re cultivating community, developing the first CSA scheme in Northern Ireland, and putting culture back into agriculture.

CSA prices:

Quarter pig: £119

Half goat: £119

Christmas turkey: between £50 – £80 (final price-per-kilo TBC)

Weekly veg box (25 weeks in 2019): small £200/medium £250/large £300

Conservation Education and Engagement

We provide dynamic, interactive and inspiring group guided tours of Jubilee Farm, the first community-owned farm in Northern Ireland.
