Saving Herefordshire Council Farms
Herefordshire is a diverse agricultural county – hops, yoghurt, beef, apples, cheese, chickens, strawberries, pork, asparagus, lamb – you name it, we grow it. And council-owned farms are the only means by which ordinary people have a hope of getting a foot on the farming ladder.
However the livelihoods and homes of almost 50 tenant farmers and their families are immediately at stake, as well as the future farming careers of generations to come.
Local political party Its Our County are making a legal challenge to Herefordshire Council over the sale of their farms estate.
