Visiting the Farm
River Bourne Community Farm is open from 9am - 4pm Tuesday – Friday and 10am to 1pm on Saturdays and we are very happy to receive visitors. Entry is free for everyone and we very much hope you have an enjoyable time.
This year the farm would like to build a new purpose built, warm & cosy Community Farm Cafe to replace our current draughty outdoor seating area! In order to do this we will need to raise £50,000 and have already planned a number of fundraising events. The farm is a ‘not for profit’ organisation working to provide the community with an attractive and welcoming amenity. Please help us in our fundraising efforts by giving a donation towards the build. Many thanks.
