New Pastures Care Farm provides health, social and an educational service for a range of vulnerable groups of people. This includes people with mental health problems, people suffering from mild to moderate depression, adults and children with learning disabilities, people with autism and young people that do not necessarily engage with formal lessons in school.
We provide a supervised, structured programme of farming-related activities which includes animal husbandry (livestock, small animals, poultry), crop and vegetable production and estate skills. We provide a day service for participants to attend the farm as part of a structured care, rehabilitation, therapeutic or educational programme, which can lead to in-house or more formal qualifications if required. These qualifications can be invaluable to young people especially when they are not in full time education or taking their GCSE's.
Our first site Hillcrescent Farm, based in North Warwickshire was founded in 2012, and it has grown and developed over the years, however, still maintains its unique family run, friendly atmosphere. Hillcrescent Farms sister site, Whitegates Farm, located in the village of Harbury, close to Leamington Spa and Warwick is new to us for 2019 and we are very excited to develop the site along with the help from our Day Farmers.
Katie and Stuart run the farm and are both fully qualified teachers, they have vast experience working with vulnerable groups of people. They are always there with a friendly face to welcome you.
