    Following our meeting on Monday 20 March – ‘A History of Easton Lodge, The Countess and Her Gardens’ – Spencer Christy from Lauriston Farm will give a short presentation: Lauriston Farm Community Share Offer Now Open!

    Situated right on the Blackwater Estuary, just outside Goldhanger, Lauriston Farm’s 210 acres are managed using Biodynamic techniques and philosophy inspired by Rudolph Steiner’s Agriculture Lectures from 1924. The farm is home to rare breed Shetland cattle and North Ronaldsay sheep, bee hives, laying hens, vegetables, woodland and a strong social farming impulse. Eighty-five per cent of the farm is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Within this, there are also two listed ancient monuments, produce Demeter certified beef, lamb, vegetables, fruits and meadow hay and organically certified knitting yarn, sheepskin rugs and throws.

    They have formed a Charitable Community Benefit Society for the farm and are running a community share offer at the moment. It is to form a community run business and people’s share pledges will fund an expansion of the Biodynamic produce as well as start them working with adults with learning difficulties.
