In April 2013 we were granted planning permission to develop our first three affordable smallholdings for new entrants to ecological agriculture.

Since then three families have moved on and have been developing their livelihoods. Find out more and read our latest monitoring report.

In December 2017 The ELC purchased an 18 acre field on the Gower Peninsula in South Wales.

A local food project Cae Tan CSA are stewarding the land to increase their production of seasonal veg for the local community, delivered in veg boxes.

In October 2018 we purchased a 21-acre field in the village of Sparkford, South Somerset. We are currently preparing our planning application to create three small farms and consulting with the local residents and stakeholders.
