Welcome to Butterfly Lodge Education and
Wellies-On Care Farm
We are a 40 acre care farm based in Abberton just outside of Colchester in the heart of the Essex countryside. A care farm brings together the care of the land, environment and animals with care of the people. A care farm opens its doors to anyone who can benefit from being out in the countryside and enjoy taking part in the daily life of a working farm. At Wellies On, we are a community farm focusing on social inclusion and our philosophy is…
“Tell me and I'll forget; Show me and I might remember; Involve me and I'll understand.”

Being introduced this week...
Butterfly Lodge Education has recently taken over 'The Crafty Goat Cafe' which is situated on the same site. This means that the co-farmers will get the opportunity to gain experience working in the cafe. They will be able to work front of house welcoming customers, taking orders and preparing meals under the supervision of one of our staff.
Next week we will be supporting Children in Need by wearing something spotty! We would like to encourage our service users to come in something spotty and maybe bring something down that the animals could wear too! We will also be selling Pudsy Bear cupcakes in The Crafty Goat, where all donations raised will go to Children in Need.
