Welcome to Clinks Care FarmClinks Care Farm
is a 143 acre Norfolk County Farm in Toft Monks, near Beccles. As a care farm
we combine the care of the land with the care of people.We offer opportunities for people to help out on the farm. Because of the natural therapeutic environment, this can aid people’s recovery and even be a preparation for employment in our sector or other industries.The care farm also provides an alternative to daycare by offering many meaningful activities on a working farm.
Clinks Care Farm was launched in May 2010 and is run by husband and wife team Doeke Dobma and Iris van Zon supported by a dedicated team of directors, staff, volunteers and local colleague farmers.
We are a social enterprise so all our profits will be ploughed back into the care farm, people attending and our local communities.
Clinks care farm has won awards for its innovation in farming and work with disadvantaged people. Please click here to view the awards.

Clinks Care farm is delighted to announce the opening of the regions only ‘Pick Your Own Cut Flower Garden’. Nestled just off the A143 near Beccles the award winning working farm is an oasis for disadvantaged people, providing a natural therapeutic environment whilst combining the care of the land with the care of the people.
The new cut flower garden embraces this ethos with its swathes of naturalistic, relaxed planting. The large mixture of perennials and annuals grown, planted and tended with the assistance of the farm helpers is a riot of colour, texture and form. The farm has continued its practice of growing without chemicals, and already the bees and butterflies have shown their appreciation.
The brief was simple explains Niamh Mullally, the farms Market Gardener, create a flower garden without formality or rigidity that could be enjoyed by everyone. At only three months old it’s already a success and is open to the public Monday to Saturday 10am to 3.30pm.
