Willow Farm. A Care Farm with Heart

Willow Farm is a new care farm in Yalding near Maidstone, Kent. We offer sen schools and sen units within mainstream schools the opportunity to visit the farm to give the children a real farm experience. Class visits will enable the children to interact with our friendly animals, do some pond dipping, explore the orchards and ancient woodland shaw and to undertake real farm work in a fun and educational way.
