Longmead Community Farm
Who we are
The staff and trustees who oversee Longmead, consist of a group of local people from a variety of backgrounds.
What we do
We help our visitors to heal family relationships and build the confidence to face and overcome difficulties.
A typical stay
The excitement of a fresh new day. The great outdoors. Mucking in together. Creating. Peace and reflection.
Through compassion, we tend to achieve significant results, in the majority of our visitors’ and their family’s lives.
How we aim to help
Our work with families is unique, in that we don’t 'intervene', we work alongside; befriending, helping and supporting families who visit for a day, weekend or several weekends. Working together is critical to the success of Longmead. Central to this is the willingness of families to get involved and participate in the activities, as well as being open to reflect on their individual family circumstances. Longmead is affiliated to the 'care farming' network, and its working is based on their code of practice. A visit to Longmead can result in amazing improvements in a whole range of family and social issues - we're looking forward to helping in YOUR life too…
