AN ACADEMIC is trying to raise the profile of care farms such as one in Abberton.
Rachel Bragg will address the National Care Farming Conference and highlight the benefits of care farms.
Rachel is part of the Green Exercise Research Team at Essex University and recently visited Butterfly Lodge in Abberton.
Care farms allow people with mental and physical health problems to interact with animals and improve their well-being.
