In December 2017, The ELC purchased an 18 acre field on the Gower Peninsular in South Wales.
The land is a welcomingly flat site made of four fields with good access and healthy hedgerows. We’re delighted to know that the land has been well managed previously, with good soil and existing stock-proof fencing allowing a running start to sowing and growing this Spring. It’s also a stone’s throw from the sea and some of Gower’s beautiful beaches.
Work has begun on the site with Cae Tân — a local CSA growing veg for over a hundred households. By local, we mean a matter of miles. The Cae Tân team are stewarding the land and leasing a plot to expand their veg and salad growing - they have been busy planting out salads and have been granted permission for a polytunnel and barn on the Furzehill fields.
