About Our Social Farm (Care Farm)

Who is Wellies-On?

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

At Wellies-On our philosophy is…


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


Who do we work with?

Wellies On welcomes farm helpers, our co-farmers, come from many different backgrounds with varying needs and abilities. They can contact us themselves or be referred by organisations including Social Services, support worker, Carer, Occupational or Physio Therapist, GP, and Educational adviser.
