In April 2013 we were granted planning permission to develop our first three affordable smallholdings for new entrants to ecological agriculture. Since then three families have moved on and have been developing their livelihoods.

We committed to reporting annually to the local planning authority on progress at the site. Our first annual monitoring report is now available to download.
Invest with the Ecological Land Co-operative: Community Share Offer 2015
We are extremely pleased to announce that our Community Share Offer has been extended to allow more people to participate! You can invest with us between now and 16th August 2015, and we'd love to have you on board.
This is an exciting opportunity to invest in the development of ecological smallholdings in England. Based on the success of our first cluster of small farms at Greenham Reach, Devon, we plan to create around 20 new ecological smallholdings between 2015 and 2020. This share offer relates to the funding of our next cluster of farms, delivered over the next 2-3 years. We are looking to raise £340,000.
Our mission is to provide affordable opportunities for ecological land-based businesses in the UK. We support rural regeneration by developing affordable sites for farming, forestry and other rural enterprises which are viable and ecologically beneficial.
