93% of young people on placement in 2019 at Amelia Trust Farm move on to education, training or employment.

If it was not for the Farm, several of my students would have dropped out of education and not received any qualifications.

We have used Amelia Trust Farm for many years and they have always been superb at providing the appropriate care for the most disaffected pupils. The service they provide is a unique way for pupils to re-engage in practical and formal education.

Meet our animals.

Here at the farm we are home to over 20 wonderful species, little and large, from our chatty guinea pigs to our curious donkeys.

We are a registered charity care farm as well as being a donkey sanctuary. We are devoted to caring for our animals and every effort goes into ensuring the highest standard of welfare and care is given. We pride ourselves on educating our service users and the public about the local wildlife and nature, animal welfare and well being and the rewards of caring for animals.

A great day out for a family in search of fun or a walker looking to escape to the countryside.

Open every day except Christmas Day. We are dog friendly too!

Entrance charges currently apply during weekdays and weekends for safety reasons — £4.30 per person and must be booked in advance (no charge for children under 12 months old).

Come and meet our fabulous animals and local wildlife. Explore the woodlands and follow our trails.

Spend time down at the pond or bird spotting in the Bird Hide. Take the kids to play in the play areas. Enjoy a picnic in our Picnic Shelter or hire our BBQ. Spend time relaxing in our Coffee Shop and enjoy tasting some of our homemade cake and shop our produce. You can even plan an overnight stay in our 19-bed Bunkhouse or camp in our Campsite.

Our farm is an outdoor classroom.

Our fantastic Farm Tour is a great self-led learning activity for children, that will take your group around the farm learning about our animals and the local wildlife.

It  includes an activity sheet per child and a leader information guide.
