Densholme Care Farm

Densholme Care Farm

Our Mission Statement at Densholme Care Farm is ‘To Share The Farm With Those Who May Benefit’.
We offer alternative curriculum opportunities and are open daily from 10.00am to 3.00pm. We openly welcome any prospective young people and their parents/carers/support workers by appointment to come and visit us to see what we do. Taster days/half days can be arranged if necessary (fee applicable).
Based on an organic farm in Great Hatfield near Hornsea, we work predominantly outdoors, enjoying and benefitting from the landscape, fresh air and interesting and varied farming and countryside activities.
Our young people experience better mental and physical health as a result of their time spent on the farm, as well as enjoying working as part of a team and making new friends in a fun and supportive environment. Daily activities include animal care and horticulture (sensory garden, herb garden, market garden), willow, woodland and orchard work, and building and construction.
No day is ever the same at Densholme! We also have a purpose-built amenity building and Changing Places facility.
