Are you ready for share offer 2023 launch?

We are very excited to announce that we are nearly ready for our fourth community share offer, with a view to become entirely community owned. We will once again be working with the fabulous team at Ethex to deliver our 2023 share offer, having worked with them on our previous two.

The Stockwood Community Benefit Society is a blended model enterprise that allows the profitable, characterful and environmentally friendly commercial property units to support Rush Farm, a high welfare biodynamic farm with 190 acres of nature friendly fields, hedges and woodland. Not only that but our members get a target 5% annual return on their investment!

We make positive ecological and social impacts

Over 400 people have joined the Society and invested more than £1,600,000. They have received a 5% return on their investment annually as well as supporting our founding position impacts.  We are a successful community owned property and land trust that owns a rural business park and 150 acres of farmland half way between Worcester and Stratford-upon-Avon. We have 27 units and around 100 people work on site. Although occupancy dropped for a time after Covid, we are now fully let again.

The Archers

Rush Farm has a long and illustrious history including a place in the story of the long running BBC radio series “The Archers”. In the 1950s the creator of the Archers, Godfrey Baseley, was a frequent visitor to Rush Farm and friend of the then owners, the Hillman family. Several episodes were recorded in the kitchen and the cast were photographed for the Radio Times sitting around the Rush Farm fireplace.
