Smallholdings available for ecological land-workers in East Cornwall

Looking for land where you can both live and work?

We have an exciting opportunity for new ecological farmers in East Cornwall. We are looking for land-based enterprises to take on residential smallholding plots at Orchard Park, our site near Rilla Mill in East Cornwall.

The ELC bought the dairy pasture back in 2020 and are planning on creating three low-impact smallholdings at the site. We are offering two plots at Orchard Park, one of 6 acres and one of 3.75 acres. Both plots are available on 150-year leases which can either be bought outright or through a rent to buy scheme.

We have recently achieved a 5 year temporary planning permission from Cornwall Council for the site.
