CRT Village Show

Explore the CRT Village Showground!

#CRTVillageShow

We had to cancel all CRT farm open days due to lockdown, but we still wanted to find a different way to bring new and existing CRT Friends together and raise money for the charity!

At this time of year, our staff, farmers and volunteers would be on the road to see you in person at Farm Open Days and shows across the country. But lockdown has changed that this year.

Support Rural Business

 

CRT supports rural communities and businesses by restoring old and disused farming properties into centres of sustainable business. 

These artisan businesses would normally be selling their beautiful items at shows across the country. This year, we are supporting these businesses by promoting them online at our CRT Village Show

Our farmers are excellent!

Not only are they 'ploughing on' during these unprecedented times, many of our farmers have picked up their phones to show us their farms!

Mike and Bev Clear  

Mike and Bev farm a incredible Jersey dairy herd on Pierrepont Farm in the heart of Surrey. It is from the farm we run the calf sponsorship program. With a very interesting farm of 'free-range' cows and milking robots, their videos are worth a watch. Their daughter Zoe Clear also works on the farm and often takes the rosette-winning heifers to shows across the country.
