Located to the west of London at Maple Cross in Hertfordshire, it includes arable and pastureland and around 75 acres of semi-natural woodland. Previously a family farm, it has been donated to the Soil Association Land Trust to ensure it will be farmed sustainably into the future; producing good food, improving wildlife and continuing to welcome people.

They are looking for a diverse mix of food and faming entrepreneurs to transform the farm, by creating a with a cluster of businesses working with farmer-focussed supply and reconnecting consumers with farming. Diversity is key to their vision and they are inviting a range of interests from horticulture, to dairy to meat and even bakery.

This is a really unique opportunity to be part of a bold new vision for ‘a place where local enterprise can thrive re-connecting the community with the food they eat and the land that grows it, and that will provide opportunities to learn and get involved.’
