Jubilee is a Christian creation care organisation. We practice and promote care farming, community-supported agriculture (CSA), and conservation education and engagement.

Care Farming Our care farming services focus on human health and wellbeing, notably the many benefits – physical, mental, social and spiritual – that come from working with animals, plants, soil and other people. We offer a range of activities with small supervised groups of up to 3 individuals, or with larger groups of up to 15 people, with group leaders providing the necessary supervision while we provide the activities. A perfect opportunity for team-building too, in idyllic and accessible surroundings. Our care farming session of up to 5 hours costs £150 per session.

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Through our CSA activities we aim to provide good, affordable food in the form of free range meat (our livestock CSA scheme from January 2018) and seasonal vegetables (our veg box CSA from summer 2019), while converting our land and production methods to organic. CSA members will have the chance to be involved in their food production and get behind-the-scenes access and updates. In this way, we hope to cultivate community, develop the first CSA scheme in Northern Ireland, and help put culture back into agriculture. CSA prices: Quarter pig: £119 Half a goat: £119 Christmas turkey (depending on weight): £60 – £70 Weekly veg box: £8 – £13

Conservation Education and Engagement We provide dynamic and inspiring agricultural and environmental learning sessions for individuals, families, schools, churches and community groups. We can cater for all levels of formal education, from pre- and primary school to post-graduate and professional. We’re also available to come to you and speak at services, seminars, conferences and other events on a wide range of agricultural and environmental topics and themes. Education prices: Curriculum-based educational visit: £6 per pupil (minimum charge £60) Farm tour: £4 per person (minimum charge £40) Speaking/presentation: £80 per hour plus travel expenses (minimum charge £50)
