2017 Share Offer
RAISING FUNDS FOR FUTURE FARMS
The Ecological Land Co-operative invites the public to invest in future-proof smallholdings.
We have just launched a share offer on Monday 3rd April to fund the development of more small-scale, ecological farms.
The average age of today’s farmer is 59 according to Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. The modern farmer faces increasing pressures from a globalised market. It is the belief of the ELC that there are other ways to grow and work the land. And many of those wishing to do so are young but are priced out from purchasing land or getting a foot-hold into land-based business. The ELC work to provide new entrants to agriculture with a realistic chance.
Based on the success of our first cluster of small farms at Greenham Reach, Devon, we plan to create a series of new ecological smallholdings between now and 2020.
The 2017 Share Offer aims to generate funds for the development of two new clusters of small farms. This will result in the ELC managing a total of 12 smallholdings across four sites.
We are looking to raise between £120,000 to £340,000 to carry out this work. We are delighted to be working with Ethex — the positive savings and investment platform that makes it easy to make money do good. Investors are offered 3% in interest on share capital annually.

As a co-operative we rely on each other to create the kind of world we want to see. If you have any questions about our work or would like to invest by alternative means get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org.
