Make a gift today
Jamie’s Farm has achieved so much since the charity began in 2009.
Your support today will help us bring Farming, Family, Therapy and Legacy to more than 2,000 young people each year.
“As a Foundation focused on providing unrestricted funding,
we spend a lot of time evaluating each organisation’s governance, leadership, proof of impact, efficiency and potential to grow over time. Jamie’s Farm ticks all these boxes. That means we know our unrestricted funds will be put to great use by a mission-focused organisation, dedicated to changing young people’s lives through farm-based activities and therapy. The impact a week at the farm has on reducing the likelihood of a child being excluded from school is lifechanging.”
– John Rendel, Director of Grants, The Peter Cundill Foundation
“Having recently visited one of Jamie’s Farms, I’ve seen first-hand the incredible impact their residentials have on the young people they support.
By providing a homely environment and the opportunity to undertake real jobs and responsibilities alongside their peers, Jamie’s Farm hugely boosts the self-confidence of those who otherwise feel marginalised or excluded. We should never understate the power of self-confidence when it comes to equipping vulnerable young people to thrive later in life.”
– The Duke of Westminster, Chair, Westminster Foundation
“As a family-founded charity close to our Bath HQ, Jamie’s Farm felt like a natural fit when seeking a new partner.
Nature has been such a sanctuary to us, particularly over the past few years, and we’re big believers in the healing power of time spent outdoors. For us it’s also important that the financial support is tangible and doesn’t get lost in big businesses. We look forward to supporting Jamie’s Farm through volunteering and fundraising efforts.”
– Lou and Jamie Graham, Co-Owners, Graham and Green
Calendar of events
At Jamie’s Farm we love to host events – whether it’s welcoming all our runners ahead of a local half marathon for a carb-loading pasta party or opening up the farm to share what we’re about at one of our annual Open Days – we’d love you to get involved. The income raised from our events brings in vital funding for our work with young people, we hope you can join us.
Jamie’s Farm is eager to partner with like-minded businesses who can help us reach more young people. If you can support our programme financially, with an annual donation of £5,000 or more, ideally within a 3 year partnership, we are able to provide a unique and tangible offering. You’ll receive regular updates from the farm on the impact of your giving, invitations to events, a presentation to your staff and a dedicated account manager along with social media and PR opportunities where appropriate. If you want to discuss how a partnership might work for your business please get in touch with us.
Enter a team into one of our challenge events. These opportunities are a win-win: great for team building and engagement, whilst uniting colleagues to raise vitally important funds for Jamie’s Farm. We’d love to have you on #TeamJF!
Quick and easy to set up (just speak to your finance team), this is a great way to easily give a little each month that soon adds up to a lot for Jamie’s Farm. We are registered with CAF, but this is also available via many other platforms.

Volunteers are extremely valuable in all that we do and we have a number of ways you can get involved to support our work.
Our events provide some of the best opportunities to volunteer and add value – they raise vital awareness and income for Jamie’s Farm. We have a busy event calendar at Jamie’s Farm including Open Days and challenge events. This is a fun way to informally meet the team and get involved. If you would like to hear from us about volunteering at any of our Events please complete the form below.
We occasionally have regular volunteer roles working alongside young people, such as in the garden, kitchen or with horses, or in the office. These opportunities will be listed on our jobs page, but the best way to hear about these is to sign up to our monthly newsletter, using the form further below.
For a one-off week as a residential visit volunteer, you will be involved in all the activities alongside the young people as well as helping with washing up, keeping the place tidy and going on our daily walks. This offers great CPD for education professionals (or those interested in education) by experiencing our programme methodology in depth. All food and accommodation is provided for the week.
