I love The Prospects Trust’s Farm Shop. It is the one place where cucumbers don’t come shrink wrapped and tomatoes that taste like a perfect summer day!
Maz, our Development Manager, loves a new recipe and this is her current seasonal fave fresh for the rhubarb season. Her daughter is a very honest food critic in the making and renamed the sticky rhubarb pudding as “Rhubarb Poo”. It has now stuck (its that sticky) and has become a Sunday feast finisher. Here’s our Tilly’s Tastes Recipe of the Season. Download the recipie card below.

Huge congratulations to Anna from the Garden Team and Linda from the Farm Team, on completing the Cambridge Half Marathon on the 3rd March. They braved the wet weather and hit the streets of Cambridge to raise money for The Prospects Trust’s £30K for 30 Years campaign. Thanks to their efforts we raised over £1200.00.
I caught up with Anna to ask how it felt to run the 13 mile race and she said ” it was an amazing experience. What made it for me was the encouragement from the crowd and the messages of support”
Times: Anna – 1 hr 55 and Linda = 2hrs 33 Well done to our Snakehall runners you did brilliantly.

What a treat to trick so many on our dark and spooky farm site this
Halloween. We transformed our organic acreage into a Zombie filled farm
and welcomed unsuspecting families, co-workers and general public through our gates for a bone chilling night of scares (and giggles). With the help of the Templars 1st Baldock Cubs and lots of volunteers this annual spook-tacular raised well over £1000 for The Prospects Trust and was a total scream. See you at the next one in 2020 if you dare?
A farm-changing £6,000 has been donated to The Prospects Trust resulting
from a solidarity partnership with Emmaus Cambridge. Earlier in the
year, Emmaus Cambridgeshire’s Companions selected us as their Solidarity
Partner for 2018. The Trust have
been hosting monthly volunteering days from Emmaus Companions,
providing some much needed helping hands on our busy farm and giving
them some interactive work experience. Emmaus held a solidarity sale on
Saturday 29th September at it’s second-hand
shop in Landbeach. The shop, which is stocked with pre-loved items from
generous members of the public, welcomed a large number of customers,
who purchased furniture, clothing, household goods and much more, with
all takings from the day going to The Prospect Trust. For more details
