Lucky Tails Community Interest Company was set up by Sarah and Stuart in 2017. They wanted to open up the farming experience to people who might not otherwise have a chance to visit or work with animals.

They decided to develop Lucky Tails Care Farm which is a welcoming, friendly place where adults and children are supported to carry out a wide variety of activities based on the farm.
- CEVAS trained and follow the CEVAS code of conduct.
- Safeguarding trained for designated safeguard leads (DSL).
- Fully insured.
Please contact Sarah to find out more about our care farming sessions.

Care farming is the therapeutic use of farming practices providing health, social or educational care services for one or a range of groups of people through supervised and structured programmes of farming and related activity. In other words a care farm essentially combines care of the land (including the environment and the animals) with the care of people.

Work on a care farm can help put someone’s life back on track by providing meaningful activity and a practical daily structure. The activities undertaken are real and based on the daily, weekly and seasonal jobs around the farm. The benefits, of being outdoors in the fresh air and working with animals, improved mental and physical health; are now becoming more widely recognised by health and education professionals.
