About

Oriontree started as a little plot of land, on the outskirts of Sheffield, where we grew our dream and knowledge of restoring derelict buildings, raising livestock, breeding for genetics, etc. and generally slowly patching up our mental health and well-being.
In 2014, we bought a dilapidated smallholding in Treswell to be closer to a family member in need. We have been slowly working around two full-time jobs to restore the outbuildings into practical space for use with our animals, and turning the bungalow into a home. We have had many lows along the way, including the theft of our van with about £8000 worth of tools inside, which none of our - many - insurances would cover, the economic loss of a job, and a broken back. However, that has not phased us in any way. In fact, it has strengthened our resolve and pushed us forwards. We still need to replace the van with adequate animal transport, but the loss of a job gave us the nudge to start Oriontree as a small business.
This lifestyle is hard-work. It is 7 days a week, no holidays, no days off. It is tiring, cold and wet in winter, but oh so rewarding when things go right. It is about learning to enjoy the little moments, the details most people ignore. We want to share that. We want to bring a taste of our passion for this life to people who cannot experience it. We offer visits to care homes, educational workshops to schools, alpaca walking experiences, days out, wedding meet-and-greets... you name it, we'll do it! We run this project as Not-for-Profit. All we try to do is cover our costs for the day-to-day care of our animals, the maintenance and restoration of our outbuildings, and - if there's enough left over - develop and improve new experiences to share with the world. 
We'd love to have you on-board to share in our story and be an integral part of it. We are so grateful to everyone who has contributed.

If you are from abroard, we have created special tiers, just for you, so please check them out.
If you are a business and would like to support us, we have also create special tiers, just for you. Please let me know if there is anything else you'd like and we'll see what we can do!
Goals
£13 of £500 per month
This might seem like a lot but, to us, it's a small goal. 

This will cover our monthly feed bill for all animals. What this means is that we can breathe a bit easier, knowing that no matter what life throws at us, our critters will still get their square meals.
In other words, we will be able dedicate two days a month to producing exclusive content for you, our Patrons.
