The Prince's Countryside Fund
About The Prince's Countryside Fund
We often take our beautiful and majestic British landscapes for granted but without the people who live and work there, farmers and rural workers, they would not be the places we know and love.
Farming is facing very uncertain times. But with the help of Musto, The Prince’s Countryside Fund can support projects that inspire farmers to make their businesses more resilient and equip new generations with the skills needed to look after the woodlands, forests and drystone walls that characterise our wonderful scenery.

The Prince's Countryside Fund and Musto
Working alongside Musto allow us to raise awareness of the difficulties of living and working in the countryside.
Our goal is to continue funding innovative and essential projects that support the people who live and work in the countryside. This will mean we can help secure a viable future for family farms, make rural communities a vibrant place to live and work and support the next generation.
The British countryside lies at the heartland of the nation. A source of sustenance, beauty and inspiration, it is vital that it is protected along with the people who work within it and the communities that call it home. Musto, in proud association with The Prince’s Countryside Fund, has launched its ‘Our Countryside’ campaign to raise awareness of the partnership and on how best support the future of this indispensable landscape.
The campaign showcases the views and experiences of JB Gill, Michael Owen and Liz Earle – familiar faces whose inspirational stories all lead back to the British countryside.
Former band member of one of the UK’s most successful boybands, JLS, now a TV presenter and farm enthusiast. In his interview, JB Gill recounts his story of buying a quiet retreat, developing it into a farm and working with his local community to support and rear Christmas turkeys. Since then, he has become a voice for the farming community. He has helped raise awareness on the importance of educating young people about where their food comes from and the understated importance of farming.
A best-selling author, TV presenter, entrepreneur, and organic and pasture-fed farmer. Liz Earle’s interview provides insight into her farming projects while expanding on her ‘you are what you eat’ philosophy. Her work raises awareness around locally-sourced food, food awareness and the importance of British agriculture.
A retired professional football player, Michael Owen’s interview conveys his lesser-known passion for horse racing and the outdoors. His first competitive race for The Prince’s Countryside Fund Charity Race takes place at Ascot in November 2017.
This is what the British Countryside means to them.
But what does it mean to you?
