Booths At The Farm Competition
Booths donate to The Prince’s Countryside Fund every year, to support their fantastic work in supporting rural communities and farms. Rural communities and farms play a huge role at Booths, as we rely on them for fantastic local produce.
Our vision is of a confident, robust and sustainable agricultural and rural community which is universally appreciated for its vital contribution to our British way of life and fit to support future generations.
We are passionate about the countryside. Established by HRH The Prince of Wales in 2010, The Prince’s Countryside Fund exists to improve the prospects of family farm businesses and the quality of rural life. Through our partnerships and events such as National Countryside Week we celebrate and promote the value of the countryside.
