Transforming lives through Farming, Family, Therapy and Legacy

We’re a charity equipping young people to thrive.

Welcome to
Jamie’s Farm

At Jamie’s Farm we believe in the innate potential and good in every young person, no matter their background or life experiences.

Jamie’s Farm uniquely blends Farming, Family, Therapy and Legacy into a transformative 5-day residential programme with follow-up support. Our impact is testament to this, revealing that young people leave the farm better equipped to thrive academically, socially and emotionally during their school years and beyond.

Are you visiting the farm?

What to expect

Have you found out you’re coming to one of our farms for a residential? We’re thrilled to have you here and we can’t wait to meet you. We have a page just for you letting you know what to expect, answering any questions you may have and telling you a little more about who we are.

Beyond the farm

If you have already been on a Jamie’s Farm residential then you’re in the right place too – you’ll find here opportunities to deepen your experience and get involved in other ways with the farm.

A typical day:

  • farming
  • forestry
  • cooking
  • horse work
  • hiking
  • gardening

Our approach

Jamie’s Farm uniquely combines Farming, Family, Therapy and Legacy with a focus on giving children time and space to reflect, to renew and determine a new path for themselves.


Visiting young people will live and work on one of our working livestock farms. They will be practically involved in all elements of running the farm, from delivering lambs to mucking out the pigs.


We live and work as an extended family on our farms, working together, sharing meals around one table and supporting each other when things are tough.


Young people will receive therapeutic support throughout their time with us, in a very flexible and responsive manner. This is provided one-to-one and in group meetings.


The Jamie’s Farm experience doesn’t stop when young people return home. We will continue to support them through our legacy programme and work with schools to ensure lasting change.

The latest podcasts, news and events

Through our blog and podcast we seek to share thought provoking insight whilst providing guidance for those working with young people, who like us, want young people to become the best version of themselves. 

Support our work

Jamie’s Farm has achieved so much since the charity began in 2009.

We couldn’t have got this far without our generous supporters contributing to the transformative experiences we offer to young people. Can you help us bring Farming, Family, Therapy and Legacy to young people now and for generations to come?
