Land wanted for SCA Starter Farm

We are trying to set up a starter farm for our apprentices to graduate on to, where they will be supported to develop their skills by the main farm, ready for them to grow into a career in farming. Please email scastarterfarm@gmail.com or call Clare on 07837024552 or Sylvie on 07732487837

We are really pleased to be working on this because the apprentices we have had over the years are motivated, hard working, value driven people, often young, the very people we would love to see stewarding land and feeding people in the future.
