The heart of each charity event is our Sporting Clay shoot, which begins with a mandatory safety briefing and a ceremonial cannon firing. This takes place on our 20-station sporting clay course, with stations carefully situated in stunning locations across the property.
Participants will be guided in teams of up to 4 by one of our dedicated instructors, who pride themselves on delivering a level of personalized service that makes every guest feel instantly welcome. All levels of ability are welcomed, and rental shotguns are provided - however experienced shooters are invited to bring their own (break-open only) shotguns if desired.
We can host up to 80 shooters on our 20-station course, and each guest gets 100 shots. Scores are kept by our instructors, and we highly recommend prizes such as highest individuals, highest teams, and 'clay conservationist' scores to add a little healthy competition!
We will work with you to create a squad sheet with up to 20 teams of 4, each assigned an instructor and a Polaris Ranger. Ammunition, eye protection and ear protection are provided in cartridge carrier bags, which are for each participant to keep. Children over a certain age can participate in certain events - please contact us to confirm.
To complement our sporting clay course, we have a range of other facilities that can be used for VIP packages. We invite you to offer these unique experiences as part of your charity fundraising as a high-value alternative to the sporting clay shoot - each package is truly unique to Hudson Farm and supervised by our world-class instructors.
Please note - VIP packages are an additional option only and for limited numbers - the majority of your group will be shooting the sporting clay course.
Our dedicated events team is committed to helping you make the most of your benefit or fundraising event.

Our new 6500 sq ft event center can accommodate up to 100 people. Full length accordion glass doors surrounding the dining area can be opened out onto the grounds, and a firepit surrounded by Adirondack rocking chairs provides the perfect place to relax with a drink or cigar.
All food is included in our charity event packages. Our dedicated event chefs create fresh, seasonal menus using organic ingredients grown hydroponically in the Hudson Farm Greenhouse, and all dietary requirements can be catered for. Whether it’s breakfast, lunch or dinner, we guarantee the perfect feast!
