Many farmers are justifiably upset and frustrated at the destruction of their crop, the loss of income and the lack of respect for their land that they feel is often displayed by visitors. Visitors are often upset by angry responses from farmers as they do not fully understand the reasons for this.
It is suggested that you purchase an Access Pass to go and see the crop circles where farmers have given access rights.

With your help we have raised $4090.00 via the CrowdFunding campaign which has now come to an end. You have all been very generous and Thank You all very much.
Why are we doing this?
Beautiful and intriguing designs appear in the crop fields in Wiltshire each year in greater numbers than anywhere in the world.
Summer 2013 is a make or break year for crop circles in the fields of Wiltshire, England, the epicentre of the phenomenon. Crop circles are appreciated by people all over the world. However they arouse frustration and anger amongst farmers as their crops are also damaged by those who visit them.

Receive immediate email notifications of new crop circle formations.
This year for the first time (and with the involvement of farmers, VisitWiltshire, The Devizes Museum and the Devizes Constituency MP Claire Perry) all visitors are encouraged to purchase Crop Circle Access passes before entering formations. Funds from the sale of these passes are exclusively used to compensate farmers for the losses associated with crop formations. Your contributions will be properly managed by an independent board.
We wish to make it clear that the ‘Crop Circle Access Pass’ (CAP) scheme is presented as a ‘suggestion’ to crop circle visitors, tour groups and other interested parties. We have no intention, capacity or desire to enforce the collection of any access payments. We do however hope that crop circle visitors will see the benefits of this initiative and participate in order to help further develop good working relationships with the farming community.
A Mobile App has been developed to inform and update you about the latest formations. If permission is allowed by the landowner, it will give you directions regarding it’s location and guide you how to access the formation and where to park your car.
The Android App is now available in the Google Play store. The iPhone app is available in the iTunes store. Both can be found under the search term ‘Crop Circle Access‘.
Both apps are free for 2013.
Please give as much information as possible regarding the location of the formation such as street name and villages in the vicinity. We appreciate your help.
