The Ecological Land Co-op obtained planning permission for us to build our own home on the smallholding.

With Chris Huskins of Fanfield Farm, an Ecological Land Co-op plot – who will build his own house on his smallholding. He’s also trading using mutual credit, via the Open Credit Network.

Highlights:

  • We’re on a rent-to-buy scheme with the Ecological Land Co-op. We wouldn’t be on this piece of land without them. In 25 years, we’ll own a 150-year lease on this property.
