Thanks to support from our wonderful friends and supporters we have finally completed the purchase of new organic land in Rutland. Our cows now have a permanent home and we can start to build for the future.
So far we have bought 48 acres of land in the lovely village of Wing. We are also renting a further 24 acres there with an option to buy in 18 months.
We are renting a yard adjacent to the land with a track running down to the fields where our cows spent the winter in a barn. They were over-joyed when we finally opened the gate and let them run out onto the grass.
We have great plans for the land, which will eventually house a visitor centre where we hope to welcome many of you.
Our milk processing unit remains in the yard where we will be making cheese and yoghurt and working on other projects.
