Camphill Grangebeg is both a farm and a residential care facility for people with disabilities which is certified by the Organic Trust Ltd.
Our aim is to create a therapeutic environment on the farm for our residents and we try to include everyone in the farm work as much as possible. We are a mixed holding, incorporating a small herd of cattle, with small poultry and sheep flocks. We grow our own cereals, oats undersown with a grass/clover ley and a combi crop of peas and barley. We also include a field of potatoes in the rotation and make our own silage and hay. Our aim is to make our holding as self-sufficient as possible and we have future plans to install a wind generator on our land.
