Friends of Butser

The Friends of Butser Ancient Farm is a charity set up to support the farm’s experimental research, construction and educational activities. The Friends were set up in 1976 when a group of supporters agreed to formalise their association with the farm by adopting a constitution and registering as a charity.

Membership benefits include:
– Free entry (except at special events)
– Special interest lectures
– Newsletters

Funds raised by the Friends have been used for a number of different projects on the farm, including the Janus Visitor Centre opened in March 2013.
