Jamie’s Farm

 
 

There are two Jamie's Farms, one near Bath and one near Hereford, and more are planned. A week on the farm acts as a catalyst for change, enabling disadvantaged children to thrive academically, socially and emotionally. Vulnerable young people are given the chance to be away from their home and school environments, away from their phones, consoles and all social media, and are provided with a rich array of meaningful jobs that keep them active throughout the day - a unique combination of ‘farming, family and therapy’. 


Both Jamie's Farms host week-long school visits throughout the year, with each group consisting of about 10 to 12 students, aged between 11 and 16. These small groups live and work on the farm, supported by experienced staff who focus activities on positive, tangible outcomes.  The children experience being contributing members of a family community.  As a result of the Jamie’s Farm experience, young people demonstrate improved relationships, behaviour and engagement with school - enabling them to fulfil their potential both in school and in the wider social setting.
