The Great British Farm Project

I dont normally hark on a about worthy causes, but I just felt really strongly about this wonderful project that is going on in Yorkshire. The Great British Farm Project is a haven for animals, that are in desperate need of sanctuary.
The farm produces eggs and wools and so forth, but have a no slaughter policy, so the animals really can relax!
Not only that, but they also provide an educational resourse, teaching children about where their food comes from, how to treat animals with respect, and to be aware of what is going on around them locally.
The project encourages the use of native UK breeds (something I feel very strongly about even though I don't eat meat!), and promoting a 'high welfare food production'.
I wanted to write a post about this farm when I heard from Tracy Owen via facebook, that funding is extremely tight and they are having to turn animals away which is very upsetting to all. I think this is a great project and one that I would love my daughter to learn about when she's bigger, so I see it as an investment for our little ones.

If you can, I hope you'll join me in making a small donation to help out so that they can rescue more animals. No worries if not, at least now you know about it! x

  2. Thank you for posting the link to a wonderful project, it looks great x

  3. What a brilliant project! I do eat meat, but I feel really strongly that if I'm going to eat an animal, it should have had the very best, happiest life possible! I'll have a look round the website and make a donation. I love that they're teaching children about where their food comes from too, its just so important, especially as they can them make informed choices about whether they want to eat it or not! Lovely stuff! xxx
