Curly’s Farm

Curly's Farm is a MULTI award winning not-for-profit 'working farm' that supports the emotional, social, mental health and wellbeing of young people. As well as 'day visits' for primary and secondary schools.
Hello and welcome to Curly's Farm,

Curly's Farm is a small working farm set in 10 acres of gorgeous Kent countryside, on the Isle of Sheppey. Curly's Farm prides itself on being fully inclusive where everyone can learn and develop their farming and livestock handling skills. The youngest farmers being just 3 years old, we have no upper age limit as we want everyone to access the farm!
On Curly’s Farm we work together carrying out essential and meaningful, everyday farming tasks working with the livestock that call Curly's Farm home. Learning new skills to improve confidence, self-esteem and working as a group, the young farmers will improve their social skills, tolerance of others and have an important role within the group and the farm team.

With Curly being the figurehead of the charity and with Curly being a full-time wheelchair user, his farm has been designed around the needs of those with additional needs.

Curly's Farm is also a producer of its own rare breed pork, beef and lamb - 'Farm Local, Buy Local' and don't forget our amazing honey from Curly's own Bee Farm.
