Kira Farm is a 22-acre demonstration farm, providing orphaned and disadvantaged teenagers the opportunity to learn hands-on sustainable farming methods as well as a variety of other life skills such as home economics, health and hygiene and first aid.

The farm was officially opened in the autumn by Devon singer

Joss Stone.
