Story

Progress Report

Most of our funding has come via donations direct to our Charity, some has been donated via Just Giving. We are still £120,000 short of our overall target so we still need your help.

The Dairy itself is constructed and being fitted out. We are expecting our cows to arrive in early July.

Sark is open for Business

"Our beautiful Island has experienced some trials in recent times. I believe this project will stir islanders’ hearts and strengthen their resolve to return to self-sufficiency." Christopher Beaumont, Seigneur of Sark

The initial plan is to create a sustainable dairy that contributes to the economy as well as the spirit of the community. A dairy that Sark can be proud of. A project that is GOOD FOR SARK and is GOOD FOR YOU.

We have raised just over £360,000 towards a sum of £480,000 to complete the project. So there's still plenty to do and we really need your help.

Sark is up and running, it’s open for business. Our island has a history of producing the absolute highest quality dairy products. Come and visit to find out what all the fuss is about.

The Trust will start by creating a new dairy business to be run by experienced tenant farmers. We will then turn our attention to projects that enhance the beauty of the landscapes, particularly the coastline. The first project will focus on reintroducing goats to the north of the island to assist in the management of L'Eperquerie Common.

    Hi everyone! Firstly thank you all so so much from the team here on Sark for your donations, we are getting closer to reaching our fundraising goal of £480,000. To date through various channels and events we have raised a total of £280,000 - which means we are well over half way to our target, which is "amoozing" We still need to raise a further £200,000 to complete the project, we would be grateful if you can continue to share our message and support the project to help see it over the line. Thanks the Sark Dairy Trust Team!

Isle of Sark

Sark Community Dairy Charitable Trust was set up by like minded local Island residents who saw the need to maintain a working dairy on the Isle of Sark, after the previous family dairy closed for business in 2017.
