As a social enterprise we try to ensure our day to day running costs are covered by our services, training and of course our very yummy organic produce and crafty products. However running 18 acres, supporting lots of disabled but ambitious farmers and gardeners and keeping our farm in tip top shape takes more than the sale of cucumbers alone. As a registered charity we are truly grateful for the annual donations of time, resources, gifts and grants to keep our unique place growing for the future.
This year we are pleased to be selected as the St John’s School’s (Cambridge) Parent’s Association’s charity of the year. http://prospectstrust.org.uk/st-johns-college-school-parents-association/
We are indebted to Manit http://manitcontractors.co.uk/again this year, when our rainwater irrigation system sprung a leak in all the wrong places (deep down in the hard to reach organic soil of our Far Field) they sprung to action and donated a mini digger for a few days of heavy excavations. Thank you Richard and Team!
Our farm has been supported by the amazing work corporate work teams of Black Horse Finance who became Composting Conquerors, renovating & re-building our very vital compost area. The medical supply sales team, Ethicon joined the Farm Team on one of the hottest days of July 2015 and sowed all of our garlic bulbs in record making time – perhaps we should have used a stopwatch and gone for a world record? We love hosting work volunteer days and we always celebrate with a much needed chippy lunch to reward all the hard work.
We are always seeking fundraisers doing something funny for money, businesses offering their time or expertise or volunteers able to dig dig dig what we do on the farm. Would you like to see your name here in 2015? Give us a call we would love to hear from you.
