Farm Fundraising Projects
Tablehurst and Plaw Hatch Farms are lively, vibrant businesses. Various exciting farm projects take place year round and fundraising is a vital and very welcome part of this process. Fundraising is done through the St Anthony's Trust which owns the farm land. Here you will find some of the recent projects the Coop has fundraised for and how you can get involved in supporting this valuable and rewarding activity:
Straw Bale Farm House
Tablehurst Farm would not exist as it is today without the dedication, vision and hard work of Tablehurst Co-founder Peter Brown. For over 21 years Peter has worked tirelessly to achieve his vision of sustainable, regenerative agriculture that is dedicated to the wellbeing of the land, animals, plants and people...
Spring Water Pump
A big thank you to all the generous donations that came in to support the Spring Pump project. Last month, following weeks of water supply issues, we launched a funding appeal for a new pump. With your help we managed to raise the funds quickly which meant we could act swiftly to install the new one. The new pump is stronger and more robust than the previous one.
Young Farmer Apprentice
Having young enthusiasm willing to learn the fine art of organic biodynamic farming is the very life blood of our farmers. It’s hugely rewarding and it ensures that these farms have a future.
An enormous heartfelt thanks to all of you who have dug deep to help us fund our apprentice bursary through donations in the shop or regular standing orders into the St. Anthony’s Trust training fund. Our young farmer apprentice completed his training at the end of September 2017 and is off to pastures new!
