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.

So, if you want to call yourself a farmer without getting your boots muddy, head over to the Fordhall website. After all, enough rural land has been gobbled up for housing developments but we can ill afford to lose an organic farm.
