My daughter Jess has recently started a placement at Elm Tree Farm, which she is really enjoying. She’s getting to know the people who support her on the three days she attends and always comes home happy, telling me what she’s been doing and who with.

Jess has really settled well into day-to-day to activities and this is down to the very good support she is getting from all the staff.

All the staff are positive and friendly, which is enabling Jess to grow in confidence and potentially learn and achieve new skills for the future.

I would just like to thank you and the team very much for being so welcoming and providing me with this experience. I couldn’t recommend it more and it has honestly been really worthwhile. I just love what the farm is all about and all your members of staff are fantastic, as are the guys and (the very few) ladies who come to the farm.
Working with Louis, Brinmore, Terry, and Aidan has been an amazing experience, they’re all very special guys. And although I’ve only been at the farm for six months, they flourish every time I see them. I feel like I’ve made a really tight bond and will be absolutely gutted when I have my last day.
Again thank you so much, I have learnt an incredible amount.

The staff, helpers & trainees are all amazing on the farm. It is a very friendly & relaxed environment. My son gets a lot of enjoyment from training on the farm.

The Farm is such a beautiful environment and I love organically grown food, it’s just so yummy!
I also really want to develop the link between the community and the food that is grown locally so people learn more about how food is produced and ends up on their plates.

Of course I hope that what I’m doing is helping such a great project, and everyone here is just so friendly.
