Ready to go regenerative No-Dig commercial market garden for rent:
State of the art market garden in the Exeter
Looking for experienced growers to take over asap
The growing area is 1/2 acre + a polytunnel (16x7m). The field has 142 permanent no-dig beds (10m x 30″) in great condition, and there is space and potential to add at least another polytunnel.
Irrigation is already set up (overhead outside and drip tape in the tunnel), as well as french drains and an artificial windbreak.
The area is fully fenced (rabbit- and deer- proof).
The custodian of Goffin Land is looking to rent a package including:
– the plot and the polytunnel
– use of a lean-to pack & wash station and a section of a barn for processing
– use of water from a borehole and electrical power (at cost)
£5k per annum negotiable and depending on applicant could include reduced rental period to support establishment of new business
The pioneer growers on Goffin Land developing Living Soil Garden enterprise had a well-established customers base ( 25 CSA shares + extra retail customers), a weekly stall at Topsham market, a strong online presence and many of 2022’s CSA customers are asking to renew for 2023 with LSG’s new growers – yet to be established.
A REKO / farmers market was established on Friday nights since 2020 with local producers of food and health products.
Previously the agreement was on a share farm basis. Going forward I’m seeking co-operation to further the inspirational gardening skills of Dario & Flavia the Living Soil Garden creators
Who am I? I’m John Yates the custodian of Goffin Land with ambition to leave the land as a meaningful contribution to the people of Exeter as an oasis for food production / wellbeing resources / social/political stimulant – see www.biophilia.org.uk / 01392 319543
