Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
The animal care session is a chance for the service users to participate in the daily animal husbandry tasks of the farm. The session activities include the feeding, watering, grooming and mucking out of all the day care animals which include pigs, horses, ducks, chickens, geese, goats, rheas and rabbits. The service users also accompany the staff to our local animal food supplier and are involved in the loading and unloading of food and bedding and the refilling of our various food bins. This session is very popular, so we now run this Group four days a week. The session is open to all service users, but can be difficult for those with walking difficulties as some of the activities are on uneven ground.
