Abstract Over the last years, the number of care farms has grown rapidly in Europe and beyond. Research was implemented to study how for example young people with behavioural problems or older people with dementia benefit from their stay on a care farm. And what are the effects of working or living on a care farm? Research shows that care farms give people with disabilities a more active role in their daily live and create a living and working situation which empowers people and gives them the ability to participate in society. This report presents relevant facts and figures on the effects and added value of care farms. The report was originally written for a Dutch audience, but has been translated into English to meet the growing interest in this topic worldwide.
