What We Do

What We Do

Community 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 community.

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 Seekers, Refugees and the Environment) project is the first of its kind to work with this service user group in Northern Ireland. In 2021, the project enters the third year of its pilot phase with guests from 6 nationalities having taken part.

Between January and March 2020, we carried out a care farming pilot with adults with learning difficulties referred to Jubilee Farm by the Northern Health and Social Care Trust. We hope that this important work will restart in 2021.

A Care Farming session of up to 5 hours costs £180

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 subscribers 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.
