About The Venue - Wellies On CIC welcomes farm helpers (known as Co-Farmers) from many different backgrounds with varying needs, abilities, strengths and weaknesses. Co-Farmers can contact them, themselves or be referred by a variety of different organisations including Social Services, support worker, Carer, Occupational or Physio Therapist, GP, and Educational advisor. They 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 it’s doors to anyone who can benefit from being out in the countryside and enjoy taking part in the daily life of a working farm. You will be involved in making a big difference to them whilst connecting with other businesses. ​
