Jamie's Farm is a charity in Bath, UK that offering farm-based therapeutic intervention to teens at risk of suspension or of dropping out of school. Founder Jamie Fielden is a former teacher who wants to motivate children by giving them a taste of farm life.

Students are selected by teachers, who also oversee fundraising efforts, based on merit, which can include disruptive students or quiet, isolated teens. For five days the students wake up early and tend to the animals, while also participating in chores that vary based on the season.

Attempting to create a family atmosphere, Jamie's Farm combines therapy sessions with rural activities to help build confidence and offer a place for them to express themselves.
