COMMUNITY

Davidstow has been supporting rural and farming communities through
its partnership with The Prince’s Countryside Fund since 2011. Since
then, the Fund has been able to support over 700 farming families
across the UK through The Prince’s Farm Resilience Programme, and
hundreds of rural communities through their grants programme. A large
number of these farmers and communities have been in Davidstow’s
home county of Cornwall.

About The Prince’s Countryside Fund

The Prince’s Countryside Fund believes in confident, robust and sustainable agricultural and rural
communities which are universally appreciated for their vital contribution to the British way of life,
and that are fit to support future generations. The Fund’s charitable activities extend across the UK
and include giving grants to community projects, supporting farming families through a business
skills programme, commissioning research and providing financial support during rural
emergencies.

Our Partnership

The Prince’s Countryside Fund has delivered their flagship initiative, The Prince’s Farm Resilience
Programme, in three Cornish locations since 2015, supporting more than 60 farming families. The
Programme offers free business skills training to family dairy and livestock farms across the UK in
the form of seven workshops. These sessions focus on different business skills to maximise
profitability and resilience. Topics include business planning, understanding accounts and
budgeting, exploring new opportunities for farms, and maximising on farm environmental assets.

(HUMANS) ARE FREE WHEN THEY BELONG TO A LIVING, ORGANIC, BELIEVING COMMUNITY, ACTIVE IN FULFILLING SOME UNFULFILLED, PERHAPS UNREALISED PURPOSE. NOT WHEN THEY ARE ESCAPING TO SOME WILD WEST. THE MOST UNFREE SOULS GO WEST AND SHOUT OF FREEDOM
