After losing £180 000 in funding and half of their team to COVID-19 related difficulties, Ouseburn Farm has come upon hard times. On 19 November they launched a crowdfunding campaign that will last until 23 December to raise funds for COVID safe activities for the new year.

Featured on Ouseburn Farm's social media are posts detailing how they've struggled during the pandemic and their post-lockdown plans, which have been updated over the past several weeks.

Losing half their staff in August has reduced their ability to provide the community services they strive to - including offering fun and safe events for families, opportunities for vulnerable adults, and animal rescue and rehoming.

Just six days after starting their crowdfunding campaign, their initial £5000 target was already met. Now, they are hoping to meet their stretch goal of £10 000. As of writing this, they have over 150 funders, and many crowdfunding rewards still unclaimed—including rewards such as sponsoring a tree in their orchard or sponsoring a lamb’s food needs until weaning.

As national lockdown has eased up, many of their livestock and small animal trainees have returned to the farm and plans for the kitchen and café to return in 2021 will develop over the Christmas holidays.
