At Pennyhooks Farm Trust we provide a unique experience for young people and adults on the Autistic Spectrum: a meaningful, working life on a beautiful, small organic beef farm, situated on the Oxfordshire and Wiltshire border that has been owned by the Otter family for over 60 years.
You can help us by making a single or monthly donation, or by signing up to our mailing list. You can also help by volunteering at open days or special projects.
We provide young people with ASC the opportunity to live purposeful lives and to improve their life chances by developing their work skills within a structured and supportive farming environment.
The Bee House Project
This project has been made possible with a grant of £6,540 from Postcode Local Trust, a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery, which kick started the purchase of materials and teaching time to increase production of bee houses, with the aim of building enough to offer to local outlets (currently Burford Garden Centre and Webbs Wood).View our shop
