Fordhall Organic Farm

Description

The Fordhall Community Land Initiative (FCLI) is a social enterprise owned and run by 8,000 non-profit making shareholders. It owns Fordhall Organic Farm, utilising it to reconnect the community to food and farming through events, volunteering and educational activities. The FCLI leases the farm land to a tenant farmer, Ben Hollins. Like any other tenant farmer, Ben manages the land, livestock and farm shop with his own staff and pays a monthly rent to the FCLI. What could be simpler?
