Tranformation of the farm!

Our new recruit Josh the Farm Manager has been working hard on our farm over the summer. This has meant we have been able to expand our ever growing family of animals. The farm now makes home to many new Rare breed animals – We have a herd of 7 Golden Guernseys, 14 Shetland sheep and 2 Oxford Sandy and black pigs. All of the animals have joined as part of a nation wide rare breeds programme to “Go native”and stop these amazing rare farm animals from going extinct. In addition to the new livestock we’ve been joined by some more interesting creatures such as a pair of Emu named “Bruce and Sheila”, our new Boa constrictors and a selection of exotic aviary birds.

As the farm develops we open up new opportunities for our students, the volunteers and the wider community to be a part of something truly special.

Josh, the new Farm Manager said ” Creating a place the holds both education and rare breed conservation at the heart of what it does is fantastic – As the farm grows its amazing to see how our students respond in such a positive way to this safe and therapeutic environment we are developing here at Toms farm. This place is somewhere truly unique and special, I look forward to seeing what the future as in store for this incredible little city farm”

A big thank you to Josh for all his hard work and dedication!

We’re excited to begin our partnership with Orchard Hill College Academy Trust, together working towards positive outcomes for our students
