Growing For The Future
“The Happiest Place on Earth”
Dale Farm provides a day service for adults with disabilities and support for adults with mental health needs. The service provides opportunities to learn life skills through the therapeutic use of horticulture.
Where we are
We are located in Heswall, within the beautiful settings of the banks on the River Dee, with views across the North Wales Coast. The farm creates a beautiful working environment for people to participate in a variety of activities throughout the seasons.
“I believe Dale Farm is the happiest place on earth; where students, staff and volunteers can grow and flourish alongside our environment.”
— Rosie, a volunteer
Our day to day activities include planting and growing organic fruit and vegetables in the fields and poly-tunnels. A farm shop is open to the public every weekday selling our own fruit, vegetables and award-winning honey produced by on site bee keeping, along with a small café.
The Dale Farm Family sees how much working outdoors as a team benefits both the mental and physical wellbeing for all participating community members. Read here to find out how our activities are benefitting the Heswall community.
Are you interested in people? Are you interested in organic gardening and growing produce? Perhaps you have other practical skills such as marketing, preserve making, carpentry or office administration?
Donations are vital to the trust, alongside time and the sharing of any agricultural skills. We’re always keen to learn!
If you think you can help, we can offer a pleasant environment, friendly staff and volunteer team plus training opportunities.
