Help feed and care for our animals so they can welcome you back when our Farm's gates are open again.

New stretch target

Now that the lockdown has been extended we have raised the goal for our crowdfunder to keep us going for 6 weeks - that's £40,000.

COVID-19 has meant that we had to shut our farm gates and, at the moment, we don’t know when we can open them again. However, behind the gates, in the Yard and on the Farm, the animals still need food and water, exercise and looking after. This costs us hundreds of pounds a day.

Please help us feed the animals.

We lose money each day we are closed

At this time of year, our Farm would be at its busiest and earning valuable income for the animals’ upkeep. But our wonderful local community can’t visit us. Playschemes, school visits, festivals and Riding for the Disabled have all been cancelled. Our Donations Box stands empty.  

Usually, we have to raise just over £25,000 each month to run the farm. We've cut all the costs that we can but Shirley the cow, our horses Murphy, Champ and Jester, and all their friends still need food and care. 

Our small team of staff are still working safely behind the Farm’s gates but we need your help.

Help us feed your favourite animal

People tell us all the time how much they love our crazy bunch of animals. Everyone has a favourite. So we are asking you to come together to help us look after them while you can’t visit. 

Please donate whatever you can so that all the animals can still be here to welcome you back with open hoofs, paws and feathers.  We really are looking forward to seeing all our friends back in the Yard again just as soon as we can.

A very pig (and goat) thank you from the bottom of our buckets, bowls and troughs.

PS:  Make your gift go even further by selecting Gift Aid.  HMRC will let us claim an additional 25% and every penny, tuppence and farthing goes to the animals.   

We ask project owners to honour their rewards wherever possible but please note that all pledges are donations and there is no guarantee that you will receive any rewards from the project owner. Please see Crowdfunder's Terms of Use for more information regarding rewards for pledges.
