Bethphage Announces Exciting Acquisition of Picturesque Farm in South East Shropshire

We are delighted to announce the purchase of Lower Sutton Farm, situated in the beautiful Shropshire countryside, south of Bridgnorth.  

We will be establishing a farm-based day opportunity for adults with learning disabilities and/or autism where people can build on existing skills and learn new ones in horticulture and animal husbandry. Support will also encompass aspects of day to day life skills, such as cooking, cleaning, education and training, leading healthy  lives while developing social skills. People will be given the opportunity to  play an active role in the local community.  

The site comprises of a farmhouse, 12 acres of land including a range of farm out buildings.   

 Bethphage’s CEO Stef Kay said:

“This is a fantastic opportunity for Bethphage as this site has so much potential. There are exciting possibilities for us to consider, there is already  planning permission in place for  two  four bedroom residential properties and we have other ideas we  will be exploring in the future subject to consulting with all stakeholders. Right now, our focus is on the initial work required to have the site up and running as a working farm within 6 to 12 months.”  

We will keep people updated with our plans for the site and will be looking for fundraising and grant opportunities to support the project as it evolves. If you would like to support Bethphage with this or any of our projects, please subscribe to our newsletter  here  or donate via JustGiving.
