For a Living, Working Countryside

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.


Greenham Reach Smallholdings

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.
