At Jamie’s Farm we are committed to re-engaging disadvantaged young people with education. One of our organisational goals is to share our approach in doing this so that more young people can benefit, even those who haven’t visited one of our farms. Through this blog we hope to share thought provoking insight whilst providing guidance for those working with young people, who like us, want them to become the best version of themselves.

This blog page will be updated regularly, however please visit our WordPress site which is dedicated solely to our blogs and podcasts and where you can subscribe to receive the latest updates direct to your mailbox.

The role is varied and includes everything and anything, whether that be jumping up to do the washing up after the big group meals, motivating students in their work around the farm or taking photos to help document the week.
