Abstract:

Foreword by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.This is the astonishing story of a young brother and sister's struggle to escape eviction from their family home of 700 years. Fordhall Farm was once a thriving organic farm, run by pioneering farmer Arthur Hollins, but, threatened by competition from multi-national companies and under pressure from developers, the future looked bleak - even more so after Arthur's death in 2005. His two young children, Ben and Charlotte, refused to give in and set about raising £800,000, establishing a ground-breaking community-ownership scheme. Today over 8000 people own a stake in Fordhall, with supporters including Prince Charles, Prunella Scales, Sting and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.
