Manor Farm Charitable Trust is a newly established charity based in the historic village of Bilsthorpe in north Nottinghamshire.
We provide lifelong sanctuary for livestock in need, particularly elderly, disabled farm animals and those with special behavioural needs. We often take difficult to rehome animals from other rescue charities and offer them loving care and rehabilitation.
The sanctuary was privately established in 2011 and gained registered charity status in July 2017.

We currently have around 170 animals in our care, including sheep, goats, donkeys, ponies, pigs, hens, ducks and geese.
But meanwhile please get all the latest animal stories on our Facebook page
We also hold fundraising and awareness-building Open Days, and host special interest groups or individual visitors throughout the rest of the year, by appointment.
If you’d like to organise a visit here to meet the animals and learn about our work, please contact email@example.com
All donations go directly to pay for feed, bedding, medication, veterinary care and the employment of our dedicated and experienced animal handling team: our ‘Animal Angels’. Our paid staff are supported by enthusiastic volunteers who help us get important extra jobs done to maintain our very high standards of welfare.
Our 2019 calendar has been specially created for us by artist and supporter Emma Ball www.emmaball.co.uk. It features lovely photos of some of the big characters we have here at the charity, so if you’ve followed the stories of Dumpy, Hilda, Stumble and friends, and would like to support their care, please buy a copy here. Thanks to Emma’s generosity, all proceeds go directly to support our animals.
There are three shipping zones for our calendars – the UK, Europe and the rest of the world. Prices shown are inclusive of P&P per calendar. Orders will be processed within 48 hours.
Even small amounts can make a big difference to us. Just £1 can buy our hens some lovely veggie treats!
