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 are committed to reporting annually to the local planning authority on progress at the site. Our second annual monitoring report is now available to download.
Our first monitoring report is also available to download here.
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.
Here is our current Business Plan , which sets out our goals and plans between 2015 and 2020. We intend to develop around 20 new smallholdings within this period.
