The Farm

Outdoor space in one of the major benefits of Barrington Farm.

Our working rare breeds farm has been developed to give easy access to all areas so service users get the chance to work with the animals or relax by the lake.

Farm staff are trained in animal husbandry to help people spend meaningful time on the farm.

There's a wide range of animals which include cows, pigs, sheep, chickens, ducks, geese, and turkeys.

Working as part of a team provides the background for nurturing individual development in interaction, trust and understanding of others within the group. It also offers the potential of integrating into work placements. One to one nurturing to enable less able individuals to become actively involved in specific tasks has proved successful.

All live stock that is reared on the farm is free range and provides quality produce for our own consumption.

The Grounds

Barrington Farm offers 22 acres of paddocks and lawn. There's a large lawned area for walks or games and a barbecue, picnic area and  outdoor seating.

There is plenty of opportunity for service users to help collect eggs, assist in the shearing of sheep and watch over the birth of baby animals as well as help maintain the land grounds. There are usually lambs that need bottle feeding around March and April and a farm trail with egg collecting and feeding animals on a daily basis.
