at Buchan Community Farm
We offer a service to men who have worked in farming, horticulture or in any other countryside and outdoor environment; or men who have simply enjoyed being outdoors as part of their leisure interests.
You may be retired or forced to give up work due to health reasons. You may feel isolated and out of touch.
Whatever your background, you would still enjoy being out in the countryside and the fresh air, just chatting and being as active as you like alongside others who share your experiences and interests.
You may be able to do a lot or a little, but that's ok because there's something for almost everyone.
Our members will all have their own ideas about work, relaxation and fun but, whatever your ideas may be, we'll listen and respond as best we can.
Getting back to being you
By joining us, you'll be getting involved in farm and countryside activities with other members.
Our Staff and volunteers are there to provide services and support.
it's not just about working on a farm or gardens it's about getting out and staying active. It's about having some fun. it's about telling some tales and drinking a hot mug of tea with new friends in a place where you feel welcome, safe, comfortable and supported.
