Due to COVID-19 we are without our usual visitors and public events. We need help to feed our animals and look after our farm and woodland.

We run our farm and ancient woodlands in an environmentally sensitive way, with a real focus on rare farmyard breeds and wildlife species developed over decades.   We teach our visitors about farming, introduce them to nature and feed them home-produced food. Most importantly, we help them experience the joy of the outdoors!  We are inventing new ways of doing this remotely until we can welcome people safely,  while we continue to care for our animals and wildlife habitats.  Please help us to continue our important work making the countryside for everyone. 


Thank you so much for watching our video.   As a small charity these are truly challenging times.  At the moment, we can’t pay our own way - fundraising events, residential school visits, weddings, outdoor playgroups and rural skills courses are sadly all on hold.

Even though lockdown measures are easing, we won’t be able to fully re-open for many months.  But we do need to carry on caring for our animals and our wonderful wildlife habitats in the meantime. 

Please help by buying one of our amazing rewards.  There is something for everyone, and you will gain an insight into our brilliant work in the countryside with people of all ages and all backgrounds.

Or if you would prefer, a donation would be wonderful!  Truly, thank you for your help – every penny counts and we promise to use your money wisely.

£8 will feed our geese Archie & Ada and their 3 goslings or £15 will support our goats Florence, Milly, Molly & Sweatpea for a week;  £25 would buy some much needed loppers to use in the conservation of our woodland, or £100 would purchase all the seed that we need for our educational garden for a  year.
