Our Countryfile Debut 

It’s been a busy summer for Farm-Able, thanks to Countryfile and Jamie Quinn, one of our veterans who secured a 97 acre farm in Lincolnshire where our feature was filmed. One month on and we want to acknowledge all the people that gave donations, the farmers that want to support Veterans on their farms and the Veterans who have taken the step to look at alternative ways of helping themselves to grow and heal in the great outdoors, learning rural and farming skills, with caring and understanding people.

We are very pleased to announce that we are in the process of working with farmers who are interested in supporting Veterans in Lincolnshire, Yorkshire, Cumbria, Oxfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Hampshire.  With possibilities in Wales and Herefordshire to come.

There are so many skills to be gained including biomass, dairy farming, beef and sheep, green woodworking, making spinning wheels and blacksmith making tools, wildlife conservation to livestock breeding, ice cream making to goat keeping and even growing tea!, yes tea, to volunteer project management. 

For further information please send an email to

We are moving in high circles!

We are pleased to announce that two of our veterans have successfully started employment through our project. One as a gardener at a manor house, featured on the last newsletter and the other as a tree surgeon in the grounds of a castle!

There are still more volunteer opportunities that could possibly lead to employment available at the manor house. If you'd like part of this wonderful place and help to restore the walled garden back to its former glory, please contact us on

Lunch at Lupton House, Brixham - 28th September 
Join us for lunch and a tour of the beautiful surroundings of Lupton House. An historic manor house built between 1747-1821. During World War II the house and grounds were used by American forces, after which it became a hotel and then housed three schools.
On the day there is the opportunity to get involved with apple picking and pressing, learn about the restoration project since the fire in 1926 and discover more about the extensive selection of activities such as dance and art groups and complementary therapies.
