"The Ecological Land Cooperative develops affordable, low impact, smallholdings
for ecological agriculture.
The high costs of land and rural housing make it nearly impossible for new
entrants to farming to establish a farm business. By providing affordable and
secure smallholdings, we are helping to address this crisis.
Determined to turn good ideas into reality, to have a positive influence and to
give hope to those choosing to live sustainably, we have designed a model for
creating affordable, ecological smallholdings. Having successfully developed
our first cluster of farms in Mid Devon, we have begun work on our second site
in East Sussex and purchased our third site on the Gower.
We show that small-scale ecological farming CAN work in today’s economy.
Sustainably managed smallholdings provide low-impact livelihoods, regenerate
land and produce good, healthy food for local communities, increasing
sustainability and resilience, and improving ecology and biodiversity for
By supporting new entrants into ecological agriculture we help revitalise rural
communities. We want to see a living, working countryside where land is valued
as a way to enhance the good of communities and the natural world."
