Oakbrook Farm, Stroud was delighted to receive a visit from Molly Scott Cato on Friday 12 January, following her challenge to Gove at the recent Oxford Real Farming conference.
An early supporter of Oakbrook Farm, the Green MEP for the South West of England and Gibraltar supports several measures to make land access more equitable, including a Land Value Tax and ending the use of land as a tax shelter.
Owned by the Biodynamic Land Trust on behalf of its community investors, 41-acre Oakbrook Farm is farmed with biodynamic organic methods.
Oakbrook Farm looks forward to welcoming more enterprises to join its two tenant farmers, Stroud Community Agriculture (SCA) for its starter farm, where entrant growers can learn the ropes within a supportive environment. Kit Whitney, SCA starter farmer, is pictured above, with Stroud Micro Dairy, pictured below.
Molly Scott Cato was keen to be on the land and listen to the farmers. A green economist, she was a Director of Stroud Common Wealth since 2007, and a a core group member of Stroud Community Agriculture.
