Road Farm Countryways CIC was formed in May 2014 to enable the benefits of being on a real, working farm to be shared more effectively with others. It is separate to the working farm business run by the Knight family since 1957, now in the capable hands of David Knight.
Visits from groups like Rotary, Chiltern Society, Young Farmers, Scouts, Guides or Schools have been welcomed over the years, the late John Knight stabling and driving the local Rotary Christmas Sleigh.
Several years ago we realised that sharing the farm in a way that involves more direct participation could really help the health of others as well as improve people’s understanding and appreciation of the countryside, something we are passionate about.
We encourage you to visit websites for testimonials from other Care Farms, accessed through Care Farming UK, or to look up the Let Nature Feed Your Senses project.
Road Farm Countryways CIC is run by a dedicated team of staff, Local Volunteers and Directors. We value the input from John Shaw’s accountancy background with charitable bodies and Susan Evans’ experience with the elderly and special artistic creativity.
