A Norfolk-based charity supporting the agricultural community.

Our Mission since 1968:

Helping farmers & their communities.

We are a Norfolk-based charity supporting young farmers, science in agriculture, and outreach for the elderly.


Three Pillars of Support


For young people in agriculture

We think it’s vital that young people learn about the farming and food production around them.

We also believe that arable land should be made available to those who need it.


For Scientific advance in agriculture

We support scientific and innovative advancement within farming.


For the Elderly in the community

Working with retirement homes and outreach programmes, we provide support for activities and clubs for older members of our community, as well as people living with disabilities.

“HELP yourself in a NEW way

HELP in a BIG way”
