About

The Countryside Restoration Trust is the UK’s leading charity promoting wildlife-friendly farming and campaigning for a living, working countryside.

We believe that wildlife is integral to good farming.

That philosophy is put into practice on over 1,500 acres of working farms, smallholdings and woodland across the country – where, alongside our tenants, we are demonstrating how farming and other sustainable land-uses can co-exist with, and benefit from, a countryside rich in wildlife.

Our mission is to protect the farmed countryside, its wildlife, and the people with the knowledge and skills to look after it – and to communicate that together these represent a strategic resource vital for our future food security.

This website covers only activities at the Trust’s two properties in Surrey. For further details of the Trust itself and its other properties around the UK, see its main website.

The Trust is a registered charity, number 1007793.
