The farm is Free-to-Visit, making it accessible to everyone. However, we do welcome donations to help us feed our animals and towards other running costs. We feed and care for nearly 200 animals and birds on the farm every day.
How you can donate
Visitors to the farmyard can give cash into the donations boxes that are located in the Bird Aviary, The Small Animal Barn and outside the Farm Shop/Café.
You can donate electrically via the Donate button or by going to www.ko-fi.com/rbcf. This is simple, safe and quick to do. You can donate using your credit/debit card or with GooglePay or Applepay if you are using a mobile device. You will be given the option to make a one-off donation or you can choose to make a monthly contribution to the farm.
We will shortly have electronic donation points in the farmyard that will enable visitors to make contactless card donations.
Those wishing to donate with cheques can make them payable to River Bourne Community Farm CIC and either bring them to the farm in person or post them to:
River Bourne Community Farm

Thank you for showing in interest in raising money for the farm. Fundraising is a great way to show your appreciation for the work we do with our animals and in our education of young people.
Perhaps you, or you and your work colleagues, are looking to challenge yourselves with a sponsored run or walk, a sponsored skydive, or by having an event such as a cake sale, clothes swap or raffle to raise money.
We thank you for considering us and helping to continue our work.
We’d be happy to promote your fundraising challenge or event on our social media pages so please let us know what you are doing by emailing:
