Leaving Land to the Trust
The farms in our care have been generously donated, often to safeguard a lifetime’s work, providing a legacy for future farming generations.
Every holding is different and we assess all land offered on an individual basis, guided by our acquisition criteria. We safeguard legacies of productive land, where the environment and biodiversity are inherent parts of the farming and growing system; and where we have the practical knowledge, in food production, marketing and social enterprise to support viable businesses.
We know that deciding to leave land in trust can raise difficult questions about things like family expectations, health, security, finance and retirement, which is why we are always happy to talk about potential gifts in confidence with no obligation.
We have put together some FAQs.
If you would like to talk further about leaving your land in trust with us or for an initial confidential chat, please contact our Co-ordinator, Ruth Curtis on 01647 24511 or get in touch via our contact form.
