Based at Depden, just outside Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk
Depden Care Farm has lots of farm animals to work with including pigs, sheep, pygmy goats, donkeys, geese, ducks, chickens and Arthur the dog. We also grow crops in our fields, raised beds and in our polytunnel. Produce is sold every Friday to raise funds for the charity.
We provide meaningful occupation in a supported environment.
Depden Care Farm (DCF) offers outdoor work activities and opportunities for people with learning difficulties & disabilities and long term physical & mental health problems.
We care for our farm helpers, farm, animals & each other in equal measure.
To put it simply we are all ‘Growing Together’.
At DCF our Farm Helpers have the opportunity to learn skills in animal husbandry, horticulture and agriculture with as much or as little support as they need. The work builds confidence and develops social and practical skills. The outdoor physical activity improves both mental and physical fitness. Our long term aim is to help people move from farm helper, to volunteer and from volunteer into employment.
