Our aim is to secure agricultural land to hold in trust into the future for affordable access for biodynamic farmers and agriculture, countryside conservation and for community connected, sustainable farming. We do this through partnerships, community involvement and shares.
An ongoing project is the land at Week – now named Huxhams Cross Farm
Where Marina and Mark O’Connell with Bob Mehew of the Apricot Centre want to transform land, in Dartington, which has been used for conventional high input farming into a fertile educational market garden and family farm for biodynamic, permacultural and organic food growing.
A major project in 2015 was the community buyout of Lot Three of Hammonds Farm, Stroud
This purchase is now completed and will enable Stroud Community Agriculture to further develop its successful community supported farm at Hawkwood College, provide land for a Starter Farm and market garden, and increase food production for local needs with the addition of other farming and growing initiatives. The process of developing this community farm is underway.

The owners needed to sell but wanted the land to continue in biodynamic stewardship.
