Growing Together

Depden Care Farm offers therapeutic placements to adults with learning disabilities, acquired brain injuries and those recovering their mental health.

Based in Depden, near Bury St Edmunds, our award-wining care farm supports adults with additional needs to progress and live fulfilling lives by providing learning programmes and meaningful work opportunities in animal husbandry, agriculture and horticulture.

About Us

Our rural idyll is home to a selection of animals from horses and donkeys, pigs, sheep and goats to guinea pigs and rabbits, as well as our newest additions the tortoises. Hens and ducks are free to wander and this much loved and well-cared for menagerie ensures that animal assisted therapy forms part of our programme. Take a look around the farm and meet our animals.

Our Vision is that everyone, whatever their ability, has access to meaningful work that builds their self-esteem, self-confidence and self-care and has a place where their contribution is valued and respected.

Depden Care Farm is run by Millennium Farm Trust, a registered charity (Charity Number 1070145). It provides services for the residents of Suffolk, South Norfolk, East Cambridgeshire and North Essex.
