... Innovative Care in the Heart of Rural Leicestershire

Brolay provides an environment for people to spend time gaining confidence, learn new skills in, and experience how both animal and horticultural farming works.

We offer an alternative to the traditional schooling and day services; By giving children who may struggle in the classroom, and adults who may not have had much experience in the countryside, meaningful and purposeful farming and agricultural activities, we aim to improve their over all well-being as well as meeting their educational/health needs.

We can help our co-farmers/visitors to:

  • Reconnect with the land and animals, offering practical support.
  • Participate in therapeutic farming and horticultural activities by providing supervised and structured programmes.
  • Help achieve personal goals.
  • Help to develop and maintain their independence and personal well-being.
  • Learn about, and be involved in, wildlife conservation and the management of land and waterways.
Here are just a few examples of what you can do at the farm:

Learning to carriage drive

Working on a personal portfolio 

Feeding the Orphan lambs
Fixing fencing

Repairing existing buildings etc.

Learning to ride!

Animal care


Furniture building


Tack cleaning

More volunteers

The recent recruitment campaign has boosted our numbers, but we are always looking to welcome more volunteers.
