ACTIVITES ON THE FARM

Our key focus is on meaningful engagement, we want you to be able to decide how you spend your time here, but assisting with the running of the property can help give you a sense of purpose, achievement and worth. This will assist you to become self-sufficient physically, emotionally, mentally and socially by encouraging involvement in activities. We also provide care, accommodation and camping grounds to utilise for treatment, recovery, peace and enjoyment to further assist with your rehabilitation.

There are a number of activities you can do whilst visiting with us, some are entirely up to your own imagination, but if you cant think of anything here are a few we offer.

ANIMAL THERAPY

Animals are known to aid in improving your overall mental health. You can feed, pat and admire all of the animals plus more (all additional activities are subject to timing and animal welfare needs).

  • Sheep - depending on the timing you may be able to assist with drafting, shearing, recording, tail docking, weathering, hoof trimming and more

  • Horses - under the supervision of an experienced handler you can groom and handle the horses

  • Cows - milk them or assist with feeding calves from the foster cows

  • Chickens - if you're lucky you may even be here when we have chicks hatching

  • Ducks - if they aren’t enjoying the water at one of my neighbours dams you may be able to go down to the water and visit with them

 

FARM WORK

There is always something to be done from collecting firewood, to gardening, fencing (fencing and more fencing), water management, mowing, manure collection. There is a whiteboard located in the common room that gets checked and updated daily. If you are keen to get your hands dirty, please see your host for further information.

RELAXATION

Whether you fancy a quiet walk, personal meditation, a work out in the gym, kayak on the dam, exploring the creek, roasting marshmallows on the fire, or even a dip in the pool we have you covered.

GAMES

There are plenty of games for you or your kids to enjoy which are available in and around the common area. Not only do we have the usual outdoor ball games, board games and cards, but we also have GIANT jenga, naughts and crosses, dominoes, connect four and pick up sticks. The kids (and big kids) will absolutely love them.

FUTURE PLANS

Although early stages we are planning on running various animal clinics, equine therapy, art classes and other health and wellbeing activities. If you have an idea or want to see something specific we would love to hear from you, so send us a PM or email. You can also keep updated on these via our events on the website and Facebook
