Welcome to Wellies-On

“Tell me and I’ll forget; Show me and I might remember; Involve me and I’ll understand.”

We are a 40 acre care farm based in Abberton just outside of Colchester in the heart of the Essex countryside. A care farm brings together the care of the land, environment and animals with care of the people. A care farm opens its doors to anyone who can benefit from being out in the countryside and enjoy taking part in the daily life of a working farm.
