About Corey's Farm
Corey’s Farm is a charity that offers therapeutic interventions to children with emotional challenges, by means of animal assisted therapy and nature based activities. Situated in Kilkhampton, Cornwall, the farm is based on a small-holding and has a pony, pygmy goats, sheep, pigs, alpacas and chickens.
The Farm supports children and young people so that they can develop new levels of confidence and self-esteem, helping them to feel valued and connected. There’s solid evidence to show that being out of doors, working with animals, growing fruit and veg and getting creative with activities such as carpentry, can be transformative for children and young people with additional needs and syndromes, SWANs (syndromes without a name), illness or trauma. Corey’s Farm also offers some respite to the families and carers of these children, who are often exhausted from the constant battle to access the support their child needs.
