Hadleigh Farm


I may not know what I'll be doing tomorrow nor what I even want for my birthday yet somehow I've already worked out a vague idea of what I want to do when I'm in my mid-to-late-thirties. By then, God-willing (and by my best efforts) I've become so established and successful in whatever it is I'll be doing then that I have the luxury to work from my home in a leafy London suburb, while raising my three children (two twin sons and a girl) as well as running a nearby city farm. On my city farm will be a cafe using only organic produce and free range eggs from the farm (that you can buy), a dwarf hamster colony, a huge open aviary where birds can come and go as they please, a butterfly house, and of course pigs, goats, sheep, alpacas, rabbits, poultry etc. that you can sponsor and adopt. But most of all there will be a petting zoo for children with BESD (Behavioural, emotional and social difficulties). Having volunteered and worked with children charities, as well as charities for the less fortunate I do believe that our true calling is to help others in need, give back to the community, and on a whole enrich each others lives. Wouldn't it be wonderful if I could do that for a living while combining my love for children and animals? So I told Henry about my dream to set up a city farm with a childcare centre for children where they could, under the watchful and encouraging eye of their teachers, bond with the farm animals while learning about responsibility and respect for living creatures. He said he knew just the sort of place I was talking about, and took me to Hadleigh Farm so that I could see my dream in action.
