Lauriston Farm, Essex – Shares Available

Lauriston Farm in Essex is run by Spencer Christy along biodynamic lines. We have long been fans of this farm, for the work they do with the land in this part of East Anglia, as well as their passion for natural beekeeping. They are currently offering shares in the farm, to help fund the interesting and community spirited initiatives they are putting in place. You can find out more by visiting the Lauriston Farm website here. I recommend it!
