Beacon Farms

Beacon Farms is a pioneering community enterprise and land trust with the aims of safeguarding some of the UK’s highest quality soils, to provide local food and to support a new generation of farmers and growers to make viable livelihoods from food production.
We want to enable passionate and capable people to establish viable food producing enterprises whilst respecting the soils they care for. We will ensure the best and most versatile land is appropriately used to run productive market gardens and small scale farms – protecting it for sustainable food production now and for the future and strengthening the biodiversity of the peri-urban farming landscape. Through our projects we aim to provide enterprise support and learning opportunities for growers, chances to collaborate across the wider food system, a source of good-quality local food for local people, and a way of reconnecting our community to land, food and soil.
