Blog: Want a piece of an organic farm?
Catherine Sleep | 28 June 2006
Nobody said that running an organic farm was easy, however well intentioned and highly principled its owners. Neither is first mover advantage a guarantee of long-term success. Britain’s first organic farm is under threat from developers and the brother and sister team who farm it have until this weekend to raise the £800,000 needed to save it.
To safeguard their heritage and the legacy of their pioneering father Arthur, Ben and Charlotte Hollins are offering small investors a non-profit-making share in Fordhall Farm at £50 per share.
