Exmoor Pony Project - Crowdfunding Appeal.
The Exmoor Pony Project is an informal, not-for-profit project - income from Exmoor ponies doesn't begin to cover the costs and from time to time, we need to crowdfund to keep it all going.
A particularly difficult time is coming into winter when the whole herd needs the best quality wormer, increased lorry loads of quality sea sand for the barn loafing areas, ad lib forage, supplements, footcare, veterinary care, equipment, repairs, feed and more help. We do make some of our own forage but if the project ponies eat it, we can't sell it - so it doesn't provide income. Last year, we had to buy a lot of it in. This crowdfunding appeal is specifically to help towards the increased costs we face coming into winter to maintain the Exmoor Pony Project and ensure the Exmoor ponies get everything they need.

Confidential help for all in the farming community
Struggling to get by and not sure where to turn? Times can get hard for everyone but the good news is that farmers can reach three farming charities, with just ONE CALL
Farming Help website The Farming Help Partnership brings together the three national charities working in the farming community. Each partner charity provides different but complementary forms of help and support to meet a wide range of needs.
The Addington Fund website The Addington Fund is a registered farming charity and our main area of work is to provide homes for farming families living in England and Wales who have to leave the industry, through no fault of their own, and by doing so will lose their home. In times of emergency and where hardship prevails we may be able to assist with a grant towards certain business costs.
The Farming Community Network website FCN provides pastoral and practical support to farming people during periods of anxiety, stress and problems relating to both the farm household and the farm business.
FCN is a network of some 400 or so volunteers organised into county groups throughout England and Wales. Most of the volunteers are themselves involved with farming or have a close link with agriculture.

BBC - NATURAL WORLD. A Farm for the Future Wildlife film maker Rebecca Hosking investigates how to transform her family's farm in Devon into a low energy farm for the future, and discovers that nature holds the key.
With her father close to retirement, Rebecca returns to her family's wildlife-friendly farm in Devon, to become the next generation to farm the land. But last year's high fuel prices were a wake-up call for Rebecca. Realising that all food production in the UK is completely dependent on abundant cheap fossil fuel, particularly oil, she sets out to discover just how secure this oil supply is.
Alarmed by the answers, she explores ways of farming without using fossil fuel. With the help of pioneering farmers and growers, Rebecca learns that it is actually nature that holds the key to farming in a low-energy future.
