Friends of the Farm

Are you a regular visitor to the farm? Do you enjoy your time here and believe in what we do?
If so, why not get more involved by joining our Friends of the Farm Scheme?

As a charity, Bath City Farm relies on grants and donations, so it’s our responsibility to find the money to take care of our land and animals, to run our wide range of events and courses, and to stage the regular events and celebrations which bring our community together.  Successful funding applications to charitable trusts and other organisations bring in some of the money we need each year, but we really couldn’t survive without the generosity and involvement of our neighbours, visitors and wider network of supporters.

Friends’ fees are a vital source of income for the farm, and we are so grateful to our current Friends (formerly Members), many of whom have supported us year on year. But we firmly believe that Friendship shouldn’t just be about giving money. We appreciate enormously any time our Friends are able to spare to visit us and discuss our projects and future plans, and the hands-on help some Friends are able to give us is crucial for the farm’s continued growth and success.

Our annual Friendship subscription fees are:Map for free local membership

  • Adult £12
  • Family £20
  • Unwaged/Senior Citizens/Students: £6
  • Under 18/Volunteers: £4
  • Volunteers who have attended regularly for a year are also eligible for free Friendship.

New Friends will receive a welcome letter and the last two newsletters.  Thereafter  Friends will receive a regular newsletter, either by post or email.  Additional Friends’ benefits include:

  • Discounted room room hire (for parties/meetings/training etc…)
  • 10% off all meat and vegetables sold at the farm.  If we have your email address you will be notified as soon as any meat becomes available
  • 10% off any courses running at the Farm
  • 10% off your garden plot annual fee if  you are one of our plotholders
  • 10% off animal adoption fees

Friends are invited to attend and vote at the Farm’s AGM – a chance to air their views and make a real difference to the farm’s future.  In 2016 the AGM will be on Saturday 23 April – by invitation only.
