In order to help fund our important 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.
- As we develop Auchnerran and the website, you will receive access to more dedicated online insight, such as access to a webcam.
We would also like to discuss with companies how they can become business patrons.
What will donations be spent on?
Keeping the farm working! Three charities have provided us with support to start farming and researching. We need to cover the costs of the farmer, sheep, forage, tractor, pick-up, quad, trailers, fencing,rabbit control, any veterinary and medicine costs, and the costs of the first two years of the monitoring project.
Keeping the farm running will allow long-term monitoring, research and practice at Auchnerran so we can:
- Form an 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.
- Annual patronages for £250
- Five-year patronages for £1,125
