Our promise

Our team will welcome you and support you to enjoy the farm.

What is a therapy farm?
Therapy farms provide health, social or specialist educational care services for individuals from one or a range of vulnerable groups.
 The farms work with a wide range of clients in a variety of ways. Individuals and groups worked with include young people with autism, young offenders, those recovering from addictions and people with mental health problems, but this is by no means an exhaustive list.
The farms provide anything from therapeutic learning environments to qualifications that can lead on to employment.

Where are you based? 

We have a site at Gipsy Bridge near Boston and Langrick. But can offer outreach with or without our dogs where applicable. 

What activities does your  farm provide?
Curo Lincs Farms provide activities including therapeutic horticulture, animal care, arts and crafts, wood working and supported social groups including dog cafes. We have a person centered approach and will tailor each activity to the participants’ abilities and preferences. 

What makes us unique is that we have a free range farm where the animals will live out their natural lives. Many have been rescued and needed rehabilitation. And now love to help you overcome your anxieties and phobias. We operate on a trust technique so our animals are not forced into working with you. You work towards earning the animals trust. 


We also recycle and reuse as much as possible even our left over shrubbery gets burnt for the chickens dust baths. 

We can teach basic DIY skills, Mindful activities, Crafts and social skills. 

As a client you will direct the pace and what you do. We will work alongside you to help build your confidence. Whether that is poo picking or painting a mural, art therapy or collecting eggs. no pre set agenda. We will help you to build a toolbox of resilience skills and  techniques to use at home. 

Who can come to your farm?
Adults, and children over the age of 10 with Mental health disabilities, learning disabilities, dementia and additional needs

Children aged 10+ with or without additional needs via parent, EHCP, SEN, Home School or for educational visits.

Why do you charge for your services?
We are a Community Interest Company. This means that we are a business but all our profits go back into the business for the benefit of those who use our services and the wider community.

Is your farm accessible?
 It is a farm so there are areas that are uneven. The whole site is fenced and secure. We have both outdoor and indoor areas so that participants can choose activities according to the weather.  Although it’s a fairly small site, there are plenty of ‘quiet’ places and outdoor sensory areas for people who may need some time out.
