Little Gate Farm

Creating opportunities for people with learning disabilities and autism to help them live fulfilling and independent lives.
Little Gate Farm

Woodland enterprise

We have 20 acres of ancient Woodland at Little Gate Farm. Our team of learning disabled and autistic work trainees manage our woodland sustainably and use the woodland as a resource for a social enterprise.

Young rangers

For learning disabled and autistic children and young people aged 8 to 18. We support children and young people with learning disabilities through our Young Ranger programme.  This project runs during school holidays.

Meet the team

Our team work in two areas: the farm team are based in Beckley and do work training, while the supported employment team are based in Hastings and work with employers and trainees to find job opportunities and support our trainees as they go into work.

Meet Andrew!

Andrew started his job at Birkdale Nursery back in November, and is soon on his way to be working fully independently!😊

Andrew works on a Friday afternoon, and his main duty is to keep the outside area clean and tidy! Andrew is chatty, sociable and a hard working man!💚

We are really proud of his achievements and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for him💫

Our trainees have been working hard for the last few weeks making food and practising customer service skills for future events at LGF!💚

A special shoutout goes to Courtney, who was making mini Bakewell tarts! She really focussed on her quality control and they all came out perfectly and all the same size🥧

It’s so positive seeing everyone work so hard as a team to make our events at LGF as hospitable (and delicious) as possible! Well done everyone💫💫

Just a friendly reminder that Little Gate Farm is not open to visitors from the general public! We are a working farm, supporting adults and children with learning disabilities😊

However, please of course come to our scheduled events, when we (and the animals) are ready and prepared to see all your friendly faces!💚 We hate having to turn people away, but we just can’t accommodate visitors! We hope that you understand and hope to see you at the Little Gate Big Festival!💫💫

We have exciting young rangers news! As well as opening in the holidays and at weekends- we are now piloting: Twilight Young Rangers!😊💚

We can’t wait to have loads of fun on the farm, including cooking our own campfire dinner!🔥🌿

Please note that pick ups will be from Saxon Mount and Glyne Gap School. Unfortunately we are unable to travel to any other schools, but these young rangers are welcome to be dropped off at the farm at 4pm by their parents/carers, or if they can be driven to the pick up points for this time we can also accommodate that💫
