TESTIMONIALS

“My teenage daughter struggled with her mental health and extreme anxiety during lockdown. I asked for advice from Mrs Wilson as she is so knowledgeable and experienced in this area.”

“For the past couple of years my 11 year old daughter has been coming to Corn Close on a regular basis. She looks after and rides the horses and tends to the goats and sheep. My daughter has benefitted so much from the close contact with the animals and having a friendly face (Catherine Wilson) explaining the process and a relaxing environment in which to work.”

“On a recent visit to North Yorkshire we were able to visit this fantastic farm. As a teacher I can see the huge benefits that this farm can offer to children of all ages and abilities.”

“There are already lots of children who "pop up and visit" and the benefit of spending time with animals and in a natural setting to these vulnerable children and adults is clear.”
