A Norfolk-based charity supporting the agricultural community.

Our Purpose

CLAN TRUST exists to manage the legacy of the late Robert W. Alston Esq.

The legacy consists of a 600 acre farm near North Walsham in Norfolk and a considerable equity portfolio.

We at the Clan Trust are committed to farming and fundraising for the benefit of:


budding farmers

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

That’s why we support education about agriculture and the environment.

We also help with specialist training and equipment for young farmers.


land & science

We believe that arable land should be made available to those who need it. Land donated to The Clan Trust will remain a lasting legacy, with tenants arranged and monitored by our experienced team.

We also support scientific and innovative advancement within farming.



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.
