    Story

    I’m saddened to say that due to lockdown we have had to close to the public once again. We have really appreciated your support this year but unfortunately we need to ask for your help yet again. Any donations you are able to make are gratefully received and will go towards our winter feed fund.

    2019 and 2020 have not been kind to us with the Hall Road road closure, the wettest winter that we have experienced on this farm and when the weather did change we were already in the first lockdown which has now been followed by the second.

    To give you an understanding of our weekly coste we pay nearly £4 a bale of hay and use 80 bales a week to feed all the animals, our bedding costs £7.50 a bale and we use 25 bales a week and our animal feed costs us £175.

    We really don't like to ask for help but the farm is really vulnerable and without your help we are not sure we will survive this one.

      Thank you all for your support, I hope you understand how much it means to us all. This page was initially set up to help us through lockdown & it meant that we were able to remove funds to pay for our animal feed over the Christmas break, it is always a very substantial bill & the help you provided was amazing. Since we flooded we have been astounded again by you all and we have raised £1,560 since it happened. All the animals are safe but we are still in a precarious position & thank everyone that has reached out to help.
