Membership The Future Progress Our Vision

Many people would like to have a small holding and have a few animals and grow organic produce, but the cost of purchasing a property for this is beyond most people’s affordability.

Land and Leisure are offering a unique opportunity to be part of a community not-for-profit farm for up to £2,000 investment.

We have the opportunity of renting a property of 200 - 300 acres in East Sussex.

If you would like to be part of this, you can become a member of the community farm for the above mentioned investment. This would allow you and your immediate family to visit the farm and take part in growing the fruit and vegetables, also looking after the livestock.

There is a need to have a paid, on-site labour force, to work the land on a day-to-day basis, but if you are at the site, you will be more than welcome to help with any work that may need doing at that time.

As a member, you can camp on site (either bring your own tent, caravan or motorhome or use one of our yurts) to enjoy the countryside, being close to wildlife and natural habitats.

There will be activities for groups to take part in, along with workshops and debates on a number of issues.

Events are mainly May to September.

Members will become the customers for the produce, which can be collected from the farm or delivered via a fruit and veg box scheme and any surpluses will be sold in the locality. In the event of a financial surplus members could benefit from a share of this, less any reinvestment that is required at the appropriate time.

This is a fantastic opportunity to get involved in a true community project with the added benefits of knowing exactly where and how the produce you then purchase has been grown or reared, alongside the use of facilities on-site for members at special rates.
