Our team is small and friendly, each with our own expertise. We work hard together in order to provide the best service we can. 


Hello my name is Stuart 


Prior to New Pastures, I worked  at Derwen College in Oswestry and Moulton College in Northamptonshire where I taught both practical and theory land based subjects, as well as being a course manager. I am passionate about inspiring and helping people to grow and helping them to achieve their personal targets. I enjoy teaching and facilitating practical skills such as agricultural husbandry and countryside skills. I love my cows and hedge laying is my guilty pleasure!



Katie Wootton

Hi I'm Katie!


Previously, I worked at Moulton College in Northamptonshire where I primarily taught countryside management and agriculture, from Entry level up to degree level. However, my passion was always teaching young people with learning disabilities and autism. I am passionate about helping people to learn new skills, and supporting them in a pastoral capacity.  My role on the farm is to deliver qualifications and the day to day running of the business.

My favourite animals are horses, I love nothing more than spending an afternoon pampering the horses and sharing my knowledge. 

 I am a smiley face to greet people in the mornings!





 Farm Support Worker


My name is Mel. I’m a parent/carer.

I love to see people fulfil their potential and have a great time while doing it.

I believe in ability not disability. I love all aspects of art and photography and love to pass on what I have learnt.


To relax I love to ride my motorbike and go on adventures in the campervan.



 Learning Support Assistant


My name Alice

I love the outdoors! I have always had pets such as dogs and rabbits, and I have grown up with horses too. Throughout my life, I spend many years volunteering at riding schools, helping out on local farms and spending all my spare time outside. I love the farming way of life, and I am keen to get stuck in at every opportunity I get. I have previously worked within a SEN educational farm provision. I loved being able to combine my passion for animals, the outdoors and farming, with my passion for supporting young people and watching them succeed despite challenges they may come across.
