Day Services



At Acorn Farm we run a Day Service for people with disabilities, who work on the farm whilst gaining new skills for their own development and future employment.

There are 3 main areas of work people we support can get involved in here at the farm: animal care, horticulture and farm maintenance

To find out more, please contact us.


The people we support will also be offered further opportunities to progress, develop and widen their skills through taking part in additional activities and courses. Previous activities have included football sessions, a healthy cookery course and Zumba.

Please note: There is a daily charge for such activities and unfortunately we are unable to accept volunteers or provide work experience placements.
