Surviving The Shutdown - Covid-19

UPDATE - we have raised our target sum as we are still unable to open and we still need your support. We have been overwhelmed with your response in these challenging times and we are managing to keep things ticking over until the happy day comes when we can welcome you all back.

Hoping to have some great announcements to share with you all soon - keep following us and thank you.

We are caring for our animals, sweeping the footpaths and planting out our crops for a great harvest.

Meadows are being mowed, fences fixed and stables scrubbed and cleaned, but without any visitors and with no statutory funding, we are going to struggle to pay our bills.

Every pound donated will go towards supporting the farm during this shutdown and to ensure we are still here, still looking good when it's all over.
Tam O'Shanter Urban Farm exists to promote the preservation of the building known as Tam O'Shanter Cottage for use as a field study centre for the advancement of education in Wirral and to provide and maintain facilities in the interest of social welfare for recreation and leisure time occupation for the inhabitants of the same Borough of Wirral, thereby improving their conditions of life.

We are trying to make sure this continues so we can carry on making memories today for our children and grandchildren.
