Support Us

We rely on the support of our community and funders to do the incredible work we do.

We do raise about a third of our own money through delivering contracts, hiring and licensing out assets, running courses, and of course, selling eggs, honey and vegetables. We are trying to increase the amount of money we make for ourselves to ensure our financial sustainability. However, we still rely on kind donors and funders for money.

But there are other ways to support us: our volunteers keep the garden and shop running, corporate volunteering groups carry out vital farmyard tasks, local people offer their skills and time, while both individuals and organisations donate items from our wishlist.


Visiting the farm is free, but your donations help us stay open, keep the animals healthy, the garden pretty and community happy and projects going. Please support us with a donation.
