Before entering a crop circle please check if the farmer granted access. This will be communicated on our Facebook page and website.
If there is no clarity regarding access (yet), please do not assume that permission is given. There could be many reasons for farmers to deny access.
When there is a sign asking not to enter the field,please respect it.
When access is granted by the farmer, please make a donation.
People from all over the world come to the English countryside each summer to see and experience crop circles first hand. Most visitors may not be aware of the impact upon farmers privacy, livelihoods and financial losses. Crop circles and visitors are a big concern for the farming community.
We are working on a series of initiatives in order to create good working relationships with the local farming community, land-owners, local government agencies, the Rural Crime Team, in an effort to foster multi-lateral understandings that will benefit all parties in the longer term.
Farmers’ wishes regarding access are communicated through our Facebook page, website and at the Exhibition.
Many farmers are justifiably very angry 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.Visitors may not be aware of the extent of this negative experience of farmers. There is a very real risk that all or many formations will be immediately cut out.
How, where and why do crop circles appear?
Can I visit circle a circle?
And if so, is there a code of conduct to follow?
We help to answer these questions.
