You are not expected to provide anything more than a parking space, if you choose to provide more or allow more time, that is entirely for you and the FGM member to agree on. FGM members are advised to ring ahead to the property to confirm space availability and any special conditions.

All the Farmgate Mate members agree to follow the Golden Rules (How it works) as part of their membership and are expected to follow the principles of Leave No Trace.

In relation to public liability insurance, you are recommended to add the Farmgate Mate activity onto your existing policy, it should not cost anything extra (depending on your insurer) and provides that extra level of assurance.
