Care Farming, sometimes known as social farming, is proving highly successful at Botton Village. This therapeutic use of farming and horticultural practice fits naturally into the Camphill spirit of active participation.
A Social Farm provides a supervised, structured programme of farming-related activities, including animal husbandry (livestock, small animals, and poultry), crop and vegetable production, woodland management etc.
Social Farms provide services on a regular basis for participants, where clients/participants attend the farm regularly as part of a structured care, rehabilitation, therapeutic or educational programme
