Important Notice to customers
The farm shop has closed to allow for the re-location of the portacabin to an area behind the straw bale building to make space for the construction of a new purpose built cafe. There will be a period of approx 10 days when electric and water will need to be installed at the new temporary site.
During this time eggs & honey will be available from the lobby of the office during the hours listed below:     
Tues – Fri 9am - 1pm / Saturday 10am – 1pm
The farm shop will operate from the temporary site under these reduced hours until the new cafe is built (around the end of March 2017). During this time the shop will operate as normal. The cafe will not be running although take-away tea/coffee will be available
Fundraising continues in order to fit out our lovely new cafe. If you would like to donate you can do so in the green boxes located at the farm or online at www.riverbournecommunityfarm.org.uk

Volunteer Opportunities...
The farm has a number of volunteer opportunities. Want to get involved?

Farm Leaders
We are looking for Farm Leaders with a few hours to spare a week to lead school parties (mainly primary schools) and community groups such as brownies and scouts around the farm. Visits are usually in the morning for around 2.5 hours and involve 3 or 4 farm leaders. Training will be given.
Handy Persons
Are you a builder or carpenter or other tradesperson with a bit of time to spare or retired and looking for something to do? The farm is always in need of people who can be called on to come and help with building projects and we would love your help!

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.
