Join the CRT and become a Friend

The CRT relies on donations. Without our generous Friends and supporters we would not be able to work towards our mission of to protecting the farmed countryside, its wildlife, and the people with the knowledge and skills to look after it – and to communicate that together these represent a strategic resource vital for our future food security.


Why not join our Friends Scheme today and help us create a living, working countryside?


Nick Neal joined the CRT last year, he says:

"I first heard about the CRT at a country fair and I was fascinated by the work they do. I live in the countryside and love hearing the birds in my back garden. I have noticed the numbers decline over the years as the farmland around me has become more intensive. I have to go out and about to see birds like the skylark and lapwing now. I support the CRT because I strongly believe in everything they stand for. I also really enjoy reading the Lark magazine which I find informative, educational and interesting. I have only visited Lark Rise Farm so far but hope to visit all the properties as soon as possible."
