Oak Tree Farm provides training and supported occupation for adults with learning disabilities, in a rural environment.

The Project provides opportunity, support and encouragement for people to learn new skills and to improve their existing ones, paving  the way into sheltered employment for those people for whom this is appropriate, whilst giving purposeful occupation to others.

Oak Tree Farm is situated on a 15 acre smallholding near the village of Hilderstone and is part of the Harrowby Estate of Sandon.


‘Oak Tree Farm provides a rural working environment where people with learning disabilities gain the skills, independence and confidence to take them towards an active role in society’.

Team Members' Bike-a-Thon -  3rd-7th July

Team Members' Bike-a-Thon - 3rd-7th July

Our Team Members also wanted to join in with the fundraising activities and chose to do a sponsored cycle ride.  They took it in turns to cycle on a static exercise bike outside our tea room with the aim of completing a total of at least 30 miles each day, they smashed this and completed 176 miles over the week. They raised a total of £357 which will be split between Oak Tree Farm and Our Space Adventure Playground in Newcastle.  Thank you to everyone who supported us and sponsored our Team Members.
