See out the summer with a delicious cream tea or slice of home-made cake courtesy of the Laverstock Evening WI who will be setting up in the barn. Take a walk along the farm’s permissive paths or have a tractor trailer ride (small cost applies). See what you can find in the river with supervised river dipping sessions. Add some live music to complete your lazy summers afternoon. The farm shop will be open so pick up some farm honey and fresh eggs whilst you are here.
Also running on the day will be a ‘Bioblitz’ – come and see what flora and fauna you can find on the farm.

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.
Farm Shop/Cafe
At the moment our shop sells our own free-range eggs and honey and stocks a range of local produce. On the cafe side we currently provide tea, coffee, snacks and lunches. We require volunteers able to cover one or two days or half days a week and occasional Saturday mornings. Shop staff should be cheerful, confident and numerate and able to work independently. We would prefer those with experience in retail. Hrs: 9am – 4.30pm or by arrangement.
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!  

For further details or to arrange a meeting please contact Jane Wilkinson on 01722 330667 or email janewilkinson@riverbournecommunityfarm.org.uk

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.  

Ben Parker, creator and chairman of the farm, received his MBE from HRH Prince Charles at a Buckingham Palace investiture in early May.
