Crimsham Farm is a unique one of a kind facility that promotes organic growth, education, welfare, mental respite and Veterans community integration. We focus primarily on animal husbandry as a method of therapy and are going to be working in association with All Call Signs to create the first Veterans Rural RV where families of Veterans and Veterans themselves can come for short breaks, respite, days out and gatherings at no cost to them. The farm will be open to the public 365 days per year with ZERO cost on entry, donations will be encouraged but not necessary. We are working in partnership with WSCC to provide forest schools to 7 local academies and secondary education providers as well as a fun days out for primary schools. The site comprises of 13 individual not for profit businesses, breeding stocks of alpacas, pigs, micro pigs and much much more, a Veterans welfare centre, tea rooms, glamping pods, welfare facilities, classrooms and more!

What we'll deliver:

  • Welfare facilities vital to our education programme
  • Car parking facilities on site
  • Veterans Hub
  • Pristine toilet facilities
  • Free access to animals for all

Why it's a great idea:

There is nowhere in West Sussex, if not further like us. This is being called the pound a person pledge. For just £1 you can gain access to year round days out for you and your children, you can provide the family of a deceased veteran with a zero cost holiday, you can provide employment for someone with special needs or learning difficulties, you can ensure that children who do not fit in with mainstream education provisions get the experience they need in order to succeed in life, the list goes on. For £1 per person, we can make all of this happen and more! The provision of a welfare centre, means we can start our education programme, which means we can generate a revenue that will then be injected directly into the farms multiple projects! With that one thing alone, you can have access to something truly amazing! If you don't believe us, check out the Facebook page, hundreds of people have already had amazing experiences and we have not even opened our doors yet!

Steps to get it done:

  • Provision of our on site welfare centre.
  • Provision of our car parking facilities.
  • Successful commencement of our education programme.
  • Farm open to the public
  • Installation of the All Call Signs RV
  • First open weekend fund raising and country fair event.
