Jamie’s Farm, Hereford

Welcome to the farm

Our second farm, opened in 2016, is found on the English – Welsh border in beautiful Herefordshire. The team has built strong links with local farmers and organisations to offer visiting young people a rich and varied programme, whether on or off the farm.

Situated in the Golden Valley, within easy reach of the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons, visiting young people benefit from wonderful walks in the wilds of the countryside. Sleeping accommodation overlooks the beautiful courtyard and traditional stone barns. There is a terrific manège on site for our unique therapeutic work with horses. Every week our young farmers can be found hand carving locally felled wood to create beautiful serving bowls, coat hooks and spoons.
