The Rising Sun Farm is run by a charitable trust to provide social, environmental and economic benefits to the local area.
The trust, which owns the Rising Sun Farm Trading Company Ltd, farms 175 acres of land which includes pigs, poultry, sheep, a livery, Food House and Day Care Centre. The surplus generated from the farming activities goes back to the Trust for investment into the farm for the benefit of the local community and to ensure the long term stability of the farm and its Trust.
The Rising Sun Farm exists as a charitable trust to promote information and educational activities on horticulture and livestock production, provide advice and support on the growing and cooking of healthy foods, provide a welcoming and engaging environment for leisure and recreation activities for local residents. The Trust aims to provide a thriving, high quality, working farm providing opportunities and resources for education, learning, recreation and participation for the community of North Tyneside.
The farm is open 365 days per year and allows access to all of the local community with no charge whatsoever. We have events throughout the year to promote community work, food, farming, horticulture and various other social aspects of what the farm is about.
