Ross and Emily moved to Laurel Farm in April 2003. Laurel Farm used to be a working farm, scrap mongers and during the 1990's was a Buddhist Monastery. Ross and Emily have converted the outbuildings and land to provide a Community Education Centre and have developed the smallholding.
Laurel Farm is used for a wide variety of purposes: a Care Farm working with young people at risk, a Steiner Kindergarten, an eco holiday cottage, community activities, team development, retreats, seminars and workshops.
The 6 acre smallholding offers newly planted woodland,
wildlife ponds, a spring with plunge pool and beautiful views
of the Cam Valley. We have a growing number of livestock
with chickens, ducks, pigs, sheep and bees.
