Kirkstall Valley Farm

Until the end of Jan 2020 we will be fundraising £20,000 to finance Kirkstall Valley Farm’s start up. Please go to Crowdfunder to donate.

Here’s our

Business plan

In September ’19 Leeds City Council awarded the Trust the Lease on the 16 acre Burley Mills Farm, due to be signed in March ’20 with preparatory work going on before.

The farm is off Kirkstall Road – LS4 2DD, accessed from the side of Ready Steady Store. It was privately farmed for many years until the leaseholder died in 2017.

We have formed a Steering Group for Kirkstall Valley Farm and produced a business plan (above) for a community supported agriculture scheme that employs a worker and sells veg boxes to local residents and shops to cover costs. Around this business, probably as a second stage, we would like to develop social and educational projects and we are already working with Community Payback (Probation Service). Suggestions welcome. We also hope to reinvigorate the allotment association. Contact [email protected], if you are interested in a plot.

We are looking for ideas, members, box buyers, and volunteers. Please give what you can and  register and email [email protected] if you have any particular questions
