Hello Sooty - the annual Hope Farm accounts are always publically available. Anyone who is interested in seeing the detail can just email the Hope Farm Manager (firstname.lastname@example.org) to request a copy. We are in the final stages of producing the latest accounts, so you can either have those in the next few weeks as soon as they are ready, or the previous year's now, or both! Also there is a page on our website (www.rspb.org.uk/.../accounts.aspx), which is a bit out of date in terms of detailed harvest profits, but the information about the contract (i.e. the percentage split between the RSPB and contractor) remains unchanged. You are also welcome to visit Hope Farm to see things in action and discuss the operation in more detail - again just email Ian to arrange a visit.
