West Town farm needs support

I’ve just been blundering round the internet trying to avoid work and I found this article, which struck home. At Quercus we’re in a similar situation, having a spot of landlord trouble now and again, so I sympathise with Mr Bragg, the farmer in question.

However, having been a poultry farmer, antiques dealer, and gardener before becoming the maid of all work here, I have more chances to adapt. When you are the third generation of your family to farm the land, and when you’ve built up a much larger project than we have, it must be quite a shock to see it all threatened due to one decision of the landlord.

I’m not saying that the new landlord (if there is one) will threaten the work, just that it’s a possibility. If the fund-raising efforts are successful it’s possible that that the future of the farm, and its work, will be secured.

That’s really why I’m writing this, because the more people who know about the funding appeal, the better. It’s also good practice for me, because one day in the next couple of years, I am going to have to launch an appeal for Quercus Community (not asking yet – just planting the seed…)

Look here for more details.

    I wonder why the church is selling the land? Not that that makes any difference… I hope the farm achieves its immediate aim of securing funds to continue. One I supported recently has got the money it needs, though the sum needed for their aims was much less.
