The Project
Highfields is no ordinary farm, and the Happy Hens
do a more important job than lay eggs. It started
in 1984 as a vision of Roger and Beryl Hosking
to provide work, support, teaching and love for
youngsters whose lives were in a mess. As Christians
it was their practical answer to a rapidly growing
social problem.

Individual November - February 4.50 per person aged 2yrs and over

March - October 5.50 per person aged 2yrs and over
Family and Season Tickets available. See website for details.
Parent and Toddler day 2.00 all year round (term time only).
Birthday Parties, Conferences, Farm Tours, School Trips and Buffets

Highfields Farm is located in the village of Etwall near Derby, just off the
A50, the main M1/M6 link.

Etwall, Derbyshire

At the roundabout on the Derby side of Etwall, turn onto Heage Lane
(junction with Seven Wells pub, signposted to Radbourne). After half a mile
you will go under a green bridge - turn into the second farm drive on the
left, and follow the signs for Highfields Happy Hens.

They started caring for homeless youngsters and


needed something for them to do, so Highfields
Happy Hens was hatched and angry hands became
gentle hands, collecting eggs.
The youngsters learn to count, read, write, handle
money and customers - in short they learnt to
respect themselves and became able to become
positive members of society.
The project has an awesome reputation for keeping
young people out of trouble and getting them
back to school. The success is such that Roger has
been asked to speak at several meetings including
Westminster, won many awards, is involved with the
national care farming initiative (www.carefarminguk.org)
and in 2011 was awarded an MBE for his work with
young people.
