    The fight for Fordhall Farm by Ben Hollins( Sound Recording )
    1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
    The astonishing story of a young brother and sister faced with an unimaginable task - escaping eviction from their family home of 700 years, and saving their livelihood. Arthur Hollins, ran Fordhall Farm in Shropshire from the age of 14 until his death aged 90, and inspired his children with his zeal for organic farming. So when their landlord informed them that they would have to achieve the seemingly impossible and raise 800,000 pounds to buy the farm or face eviction, Ben and Charlotte refused to give in without a fight. Aided by the Community Development Manager Sophie Hopkins and volunteers from across the country, the Hollinses set up the Fordhall Community Land Initiative, which allows members of the public to buy a 50 pound non-profit share in the farm. With an appeal in national newspapers and on television, the cheques were soon flooding in as the community rallied to save this special piece of farming history
