Become a patron

PatronIn order to help fund our important research, education and policy work on the farm we are offering members of the public the unique opportunity to become a patron.

What you receive as a patron

  • An exclusive invite to our annual farm open day for a ‘behind the scenes’ visit and lunch with some of the team.
  • Your name embossed on a plaque and placed on a strainer post in a prominent area of the farm.
  • Monthly email updates containing all the latest news from Auchnerran.

We would also like to discuss with companies how they can become business patrons.

What will donations be spent on?

Keeping the project running! Three charities have provided us with support to start farming and researching. We need to cover the costs of our important research and monitoring work to keep gathering evidence, which is the foundation of all our activities, plus our vital education and policy work, which shares this knowledge.

Keeping the project running will allow long-term monitoring, research and practice at Auchnerran so we can:

  • Form a constructive model of tenant-landlord relations.
  • Develop a model of economic farming producing wildlife for Scotland.
  • Use this evidence to limit poor policy and introduce better policy.
  • Leverage these results through close working relationships with key Scottish Government research and education bodies, and with Farmer Clusters.
