Donate to Charity Cows


Sacrewell holds a special place in our visitors hearts. Many of whom have explored the centre as children and are now returning with their own families and friends.

Sacrewell is far more than a visitor attraction, it is destination, with a fascinating history that can be traced back to the Domesday Survey of 1086.

Since 1964, the 50 acre site has been run as a charity by The William Scott Abbott Trust with the aim of providing an agricultural education for everyone, from school children to heritage enthusiasts.

The charity also owns a wider 550 acres of Sacrewell Farm land which includes land farmed by Riverford Organics farmers and the PGRO research site.

As a charity, your support is vital to the success of Sacrewell. You can help us to educate and delight future generations by volunteering or making a donation.

Working with Businesses

The historic site, farm buildings and activities at Sacrewell Heritage Farm and Country Centre provide a unique and creative environment for business partners.

Volunteering, corporate team building, sponsorship of special events, providing skills and materials, enables companies to make a real difference to this charity and the community it serves. Your company’s commitment to the William Scott Abbott Trust and Sacrewell means the trust can continue the task of conservation, preservation, education and development for community benefit.

Business Support

The trust has ongoing refurbishment projects running across the site, in the grounds or buildings. These are often made possible thanks to generous support and donations of time or materials from local businesses.

All donations, from tins of paint to tree surgery or construction contribute to the improvement of Sacrewell for all to enjoy, with lasting benefits.


Could your company donate some management consultation time, offer skills training or professional development for our staff or volunteers?


Could your company sponsor one of our events from theatre to concerts, harvest festival or family days by contributing to printing costs or materials?


Perhaps you could donate gardening tools or equipment?

Help us feed a rare breed
