New opportunities - Connecting People - Enhancing Lives
Social Farming is the practice of offering activity on family farms as a form of social support service
Social Farming provides people who use services with the opportunity for inclusion, to increase self-esteem and to improve health and well-being by taking part in day to day farm activities on a family farm.
Farmers experience a sense of personal satisfaction from making a difference in participant’s lives and improved community connections
Social Farming Ireland were delighted to accept the Better Farming Award for Best Public/Community Engagement Scheme on behalf of all the great staff, people, farmers and stakeholders who make Social Farming so unique, special and innovative!
Thank you to ABP Foods, who sponsored this award & of course to FBD Better Farming Award for a brilliant event!
