Stirley Community Farm started in 2011 and is one of Yorkshire Wildlife Trust’s most ambitious projects to date. We’re aiming to turn a failed, derelict dairy farm in Huddersfield into a sustainable working farm that supports wildlife as well as food production, whist involving all members of the local community through food growing.
We’re well on the way to achieving this vision and have opened an indoor education centre with a fully equipped teaching kitchen and education barn. This means that food can now be taken from our one acre, exemplar fruit and vegetable garden plot, straight to the plate.
The facilities at Stirley Farm are open for schools, colleges, teachers and community groups to provide education and training.
Stirley is all about people – local people give the place energy and have been tremendous in getting us to where we are today! If you haven’t visited yet then why not drop by during an event, or have a look at our opportunities to get involved.
- Year-round programme of events based around food, wildlife and farming.
- Volunteering opportunities and traineeships.
- Education programme for schools.
- Stirley Beef Box Scheme – buy local beef.
