About the Farm


How it came about


The project came about through a personal bump in my life, after many years of running my own farming business. It gave me a chance to reflect on the important things in life. I had been so lucky to be able to live and work with nature - the days are never the same within farming and working with livestock certainly brings its challenges.  I never grew up in farming but had this passion to work with animals and got the opportunity to learn and work on a livestock farm. The hours were long but I loved it.
If you have a dream never give up on it no matter what it is. I didn't.  

I wanted to be able to give something back and allow a wide variety of people the opportunity of enjoying farm life. So, along with 2 other passionate people, we created Merry Moos Farm Project which started life on the 30th June 2021 as a community interest company (CIC), where everything we raise will go towards our goal of raising capital to purchase a farm somewhere in Dorset. 

What we would like to achieve with your help

When Merry Moos Farm Project becomes a reality we would like to work with a range of people.

 From the older age group 60-85 plus, we would encourage them to participate in a range of activities. Our aim is to work with groups and organisations including those that work with ex-service personnel, Adults with physical disabilities, adults with learning disabilities people on a low income.


We believe in social prescriptions where, instead of being prescribed tablets by the doctor the individual could ask to have a prescription written to allow them to access activities, such as those at Merry Moos Farm project that would help them to improve their well-being.


The working farm will include animals, birds, plants and bees, with a clear eye on nature and biodiversity.
