Our Farm

Meadows Farm & Animal Sanctuary was created by our charity founder, and her family. It is based on the idea of Social Farming – Social Farming (‘SF’) is the practice of offering family farms and smallholdings as a form of social service. The farm remains a typical working farm (we are a growers farm, our farming practice is based on the Method of Vedic Farming) where people in need of support can benefit from participation in the farm’s activities. It also reconnects farmers with their local communities.

Our current projects we are working on are :

  • 1. The Environment,
  • 2. Nature Spaces,
  • 3. Animals,
  • 4. Employment for Young People and
  • 5. Wildlife.

Our Farm provides sanctuary for rescued animals, natural habitats for wildlife, and space for our environment projects. It’s also a wonderful safe environment, and an amazing support for our staff, and volunteers to get more involved with nature and develop their physical and mental fitness.

A study by the University of Derby with a recent analysis of a large-scale nature challenge scientifically shows how important feeling part of nature is to our physical and mental health.
