Welcome to Beckside Care Farm

Care Farming is the provision of care combined with meaningful, therapeutic work. It is an innovation in health and social care that provides an excellent opportunity for participants to reconnect with themselves, nature and each other.

It's good to have something to get you outside. Time flies while working with animals or tending the vegetable plot. Beckside is a fun and enjoyable way to learn new skills, improve your health and make new friends whatever your age or ability.

Beckside Care Farm is managed by an Occupational Therapist with 30 years experience working with children and adults to achieve their individual potential. Using our Occupational Therapy expertise we deliver purposeful, structured and therapeutic activities to benefit children and adults with diverse needs.

We occupy 25 acres of rolling Derbyshire countryside close to Ashbourne, The Gateway to The Derbyshire Dales. Beckside is a welcoming and friendly small holding, ideal for people to reap the health and wellbeing benefits of working with animals and nature.
