Farm Buddies - East Hampshire

Helping individuals and small groups find an appropriate farm for weekly visits to do meaningful work


Farm Buddies is a Social Enterprise based near Petersfield. They help individuals (from 9-90 years old), who can self-refer, to visit farms one day a week to do a variety of regular farm jobs with farmer supervision, including animal work, according to age choice and ability. The concept, known as Social or Care Farming, is a new expanding opportunity now available across the South East region. The outcomes from regular visits, usually over 12 weeks, are outstanding. They include improved confidence, self-esteem, work skills and knowledge as well as health benefits. A typical day starts at 10am until 3pm with breaks for lunch and light refreshments. The cost varies depending on the farm but is usually around £12 per hour or £60 per day. ***NEW 5 Minute Guide to Social Farming for Parents available free of charge.
