The Archway on a summers day

What we do

Lying in the hills behind Dolphinton, Garvald Home Farm sits astride the boundary between Peeblesshire and South Lanarkshire and comprises nearly 200 acres of land owned and leased by the Garvald Trust.

Established in 1987, this true Social Enterprise is today home to a small community of adults, some with learning disabilities, living and working together to run the farm according to biodynamic principles.

The farm from the hill behind

Our aims are to:

The healthy social life is found when
In the mirror of each human soul
The whole community finds its reflection
And when in the community
The virtue of each one is living
