Avenbury Care Farm awarded National Quality Standard
We are very pleased to announce that our care farm meets the Social Farms and Gardens Care Farming Code of Practice.
Social Farms and Gardens (previously Care Farming UK) are a national organisation providing both support and resources to care farms, city farms and community gardens, as well as championing farming and gardening as a way of transforming lives and connecting people, putting pride back into communities and improving health and wellbeing.

The team at Avenbury Care Farm has worked hard to ensure that every National Quality Standard has been met by providing evidence to support our approach, practices and procedures. These standards come under the headings of responsible, caring and safe.
“We are proud that we meet the Code of Practice and that the award reflects our dedication to providing a top quality service for people with disabilities and additional needs. We also hope that by meeting this standard, parents, carers, providers and commissioners of services will see care farming as a credible, safe and effective service that benefits people with a range of needs”.
Avenbury Care Farm has been appointed Approved Specialist Provider for both Herefordshire Council and Worcestershire Council
